Husband, Father, bon vivant, globetrotter and adventurer.
Born to Sal, a Former Marine and mechanic and
Sylvia, a life long amatuer artist, in the bucolic
foothills of the Adirondack mountains, the youngest

working on cars with his father.
After graduating from Rome Free Academy, where
he completed every art class offered with the excep-
tions of 3D art and, ironically, photography, Christopher earned
his degree in the Applied Science of Photography at the
regional secondary education concern.
Post college Christopher relocated to New York City
where he worked along side many talented and hardened
photographers from across the globe, gaining valued
experience in fields ranging from fashion and lifestyle to
advertising and still-life photography. It was at this time
that Christopher began to build the frequent flyer accounts
that would spark his appetite for international travel,
exotic street foods and hotel bars.
Having spent a decade and a half in New York City and
watching it’s best gritty bits be hosed off and sold to any
number of national name brands, and having grown older
and more wise, seen the world and fallen for a girl
from Ireland who lived in Los Angeles,it was time for
Christopher to follow his heart to the west coast of America.
Settling in Venice, California he would soon marry
and start a family with Elaine,the girl from Ireland.
They continue to travel the world seeking out new experiences,
exotic cuisines and collecting frequent flyer miles with their two
beautiful kids in tow..
Drawing from a background in art and fashion, Christopher
has worked for a variety of clients including corporate,
home design, fashion and entertainment firms.
Christopher is perhaps best known for his cinematic lighting
style and his grandmothers spaghetti sauce recipe.
