Chris is a mysterious being who lives in the northern reaches of Alberta, Canada. He is a writer, actor, painter, photographer and active supporter of the arts community in his current home of Fort McMurray. While his focus is writing, he often finds inspiration for his work in other artistic endeavours as well as the people and the landscapes that surround him.
In 2015, with the encouragement of a friend, he founded his website, the CJBuzz. The original focus of this website was to feature writing that talked about life in Fort McMurray but has grown to include creative writing, fiction, recipes, arts and animal welfare. Since its inception, he has posted 50+ pieces on the CJBuzz and he has been published 4 times in Northword: A Literary Journal of Canada’s North.
In 2019 he was nominated for a Wood Buffalo Excellence in Arts Award for Literary Arts.
