"The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnified world in itself." Henry Miller
Christian is an actor, poet, clown, and painter. His ethnicity is Ecuadorian on his mother's side and Italian-American on his father's. In the past, he's worked as a garbageman, graphic designer and professional cult film devourer. Since 2011, he's been focused on becoming a human-actor who can simply laugh, cry, and just play. Some of his superhuman powers include compassion, intensity, imagination, hope, and sometimes humor. His favorite colors include turquoise, and pink. His favorite foods are tacos, mangoes and watermelon juice. There's always a place in his heart for Lord of the Rings, Twin Peaks, lavender scent, psychology, and animals.
He's been lucky to train with some really inspiring and lifechanging teachers such as filmmaker/master teacher Deborah Kampmeier, Elizabeth Kemp of the Actor's Studio, director Heidi Miami Marshall, Chris Roberti (High Maintenance), Virginia Scott (The Funny School of Good Acting), Andrea Haring, Karen Kohlhaas, Craig Bacon, Dianna Schoenborn, Sybille Bruun-Moss, Tyler Moss, Claire Warden, Jon Korkes, Andrew Dolan, Bill Hopkins, Anthony Abeson, Antonio Merienda, Dena Levy, Kevin Cragg, Jamie Cummings and Leslie Collins of People's Improv Theater.
