A Chicago native raised in southeast Michigan, as a young child Christopher had a variety of influences that led him to the love of film and the horror and suspense genres. Chris’s first video camera was a PXL-2000 at the age of 10, which he basically used to shoot lightsaber battles with himself. Growing up, he watched the Thriller double feature on WXON TV 20 and visually devoured films like Room with a View, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Salem’s Lot. In 2005, Chris transferred to EMU, where he worked to co-found the Eastern Michigan University’s filmmakers association, which produced the first-ever Eastern Michigan University Student Video & Film Festival in 2007, an event that still runs to this day. Upon graduating in 2008, Chris looked for a way to satisfy his hunger to be creative and started working on short films to further hone his filmmaking skills.

One fine evening in 2010, the idea was set into motion by three friends at a party at Jonathan’s house that would change their lives forever. The Three Corpse Circus was born. Their goal is to create a genre festival that will become a staple in the southeast Michigan community. Since that day, the creators of the Three Corpse Circus have toiled day and night to bring to you what will soon be known as, “the Gravest Show on Earth!”
