​Chris was born in Perth, Scotland but has never lived there.  

Instead, he spent an international childhood in Nigeria, Malaysia, USA and Australia and went to an international school in Kuala Lumpur before attending boarding school at Dollar Academy in Clackmannnanshire.
After leaving school, Chris went to Edinburgh University and completed a BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences degree with Honours in Anatomy
During his time at School and University, Chris was heavily involved with theatre and dance and completed Latin American Ballroom Dance Awards as well as being involved in full scale theatrical productions.
After graduation, Chris re-invented himself as a choreographer and director and has since integrated himself well into the Scottish Theatre scene working for companies including National Theatre of Scotland, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Pitlochry Festival Theatre
His outgoing personality has allowed Chris to become a popular teacher of dance at several dance institutions as well as an outreach facilitator providing dance to groups such as underprivileged teenagers or older adults living with Dementia - the latter gaining major global recognition after the BBC presented a feature on his work in 2017 that has since received over 22M hits.  This work was also featured in a BBC production called "Dancing to Happiness" in 2018 presented by Dame Darcey Bussell.

 He has also become a host and MC of various public events inlcuding the Get Scotland Dancing campaign set up by Creative Scotland.
Chris has taken to performing and writing his own musical comedy material.  His award-nominated alter-ego, Jesus L'Oreal continues to expand and has now performed all over Europe and in New York City.
