Mild-mannered advertising creative by day. Featured humorist and content creator by night. Five hundred feet from schools and playgrounds at all times. (Hey, I'm Chris.) 👋
From Droga5 to BBDO, I've brought heart, humor, and the Oxford comma to a variety of brands, through a variety of media. For a link to my complete portfolio, just ask.
An old boss once called me a mushroom cloud of creativity.
(As his rationale for firing me.)
make 'em laugh
And watch paradigms shift in a millisecond.
It's not easy being funny when you look like a Young Republican, but on top of my day job, I write sketch comedy, perform stand-up, and animate shorts. Appearing most recently on Funny Or Die, I'm also a featured political humorist on HuffPost Comedy, an editor's-pick cartoonist at Salon, sometimes-contributor to BuzzFeed, and an ex-Viner recognizable to about seven people.
My cartoons have appeared on Salon's Cartoon Saturday as well as The Huffington Post, Daily Kos, and my own creation: The Misfit Penguin. It was the cartoons of The New Yorker that shaped me as a kid, and (so help me, god) is next on the list.
Since 2009, I've lampooned and satirized the American body politic as a humorist at HuffPost Comedy, content creator at BuzzFeed, and once — just once — somehow wound up on the Reddit front page.
You can lecture for a lifetime, but make someone laugh and watch their paradigms shift in a millisecond. I've done dank open mics to full sets, hosted by Comedy Central's Tom Shillue.
I've lived, studied, and traveled across more than 40 countries.
(And speak nearly 10 languages absolutely terribly.)
From absurdist t-shirts to subsistence farming upstate, here are just some of the things I love to do... when I'm not doing all those other things I love to do.
After college, I debated either a career in advertising or intelligence for the CIA.
(Guess who won.)
