Chris is also a multi-instrumentalist, having played woodwinds, guitar and synthesizers since childhood. He now specializes in producing various forms of electronic music.

Ever since he was introduced to Ableton Live in 2004, Chris has excelled in turning the computer into an instrument in itself. It was his love for computer music and Ableton Live that led him to pursue a degree from the highly regarded ICAM Computer Music Program at the University of California, San Diego. Here he gained a creative and technical knowledge of music and computer audio.

Chris mostly teaches one-on-one lessons but is available for group lessons and seminars. Subjects range from electronic music production and Live performance to Max for Live patching and sound design. He also enjoys teaching Ableton Live to companies or institutions looking to switch to Ableton for its ease of use and unique approach to non-linear workflow for composition and audio design.
