Chris found his love for improv unexpectedly when he took an Improvisational Leadership course while getting a business degree back in 2014. He found it to be more worthwhile than most of the courses he took there and since then, he’s studied with Bay Area Theater Sports (BATS), Berkeley Improv, Improv w/ Marcus, Berkeley Repertory Theatre, and the Leela theatre company. Chris currently teaches an “Improv for Real Life” with Berkeley Improv and has also taught Negotiation and Emotional Intelligence courses.  Chris is also the music artist and producer behind Lone Signal and a part of the electronic music collaboration Shy Ghosts.
