My names Chris and I was born and raised in a shitty town called Warren, Ohio and currently study journalism/Creative Writing at Youngstown State University. I consider myself to be a straight ally of the LGBT community who am hoping to use this experience with LeftofStr8 Radio to grow my abilities and develop my voice.
I’ve worked as a reporter for The Jambar where I mainly covered sports but I grew a strong affinity for writing feature stories. My work has also been published in Metro-Monthly and Yo Magazine.
Over the years as a student journalist, I’ve acquired a wide range of journalistic skills ranging from: writing, editing, researching, interviewing and investigative knowledge. I’m sort of similar to Thanos collecting an essential set of pieces to my infinity gauntlet, though hopefully my big ‘snap’ leads to prosperity in my field.
The ultimate dream for myself would be to one day live out my dream of writing, directing and producing my own films/tv shows. I’ve been watching mafia, sci-fi, thriller movies since at a very young age so I grew up with a love for great storytelling.
Some of my inspirations include: Jordan Peele, Quentin Tarantino, Seth Rogan. My favorite films are: City of God, Superbad, Pulp Fiction, Godfather Pt.2 and Seven. Shows: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Curb Your Enthusiasm, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and The Wire.
