A fascination with sound in film led to work in audio post-production and sound design. While working at First Generation Studios in SF's media gulch, Chris produced music, sound design, recorded VO and edited video for clients like Verizon, Asana, Samsung, Facebook, The Discovery Channel, Nat Geo Wild, and many others.

"Chris brought an extensive body of knowledge and experience as a drummer, and also had energy and enthusiasm for helping us find our best possible sound" -Seth Shapiro Uncle Rifkin
“Chris played drums on my latest album Greyscale, adding his own textures, expertise, and advice to bring my music to life.
