Founder / Executive Artistic Director
Christopher (he/him/his) has devoted his life to the performing arts as a theatre director, performer, and teacher in Texas, New York City, and abroad. He holds a BFA in Theatre with a directing focus from Sam Houston State University.
Besides founding and growing Austin Rainbow Theatre, Christopher is most proud of his two years spent as a resident director for the Performing Arts Centre of Penang, Malaysia, where he focused on cultivating theatre experiences from the Western canon that would appeal to an Eastern audience. His work abroad helped him develop a more universal approach to the human condition that he applies to his work both as an executive director and in the rehearsal studio.
Christopher has also worked as a volunteer fundraiser and event organizer for other non-profit causes that are dear to him, such as LGBTQIA+ mental health.
