As an illustration major at Pratt, Christopher began creating his first mechanical sculptures as illustrations. His professors strongly encouraged this new direction and by his senior year, most of his work was three-dimensional. After earning a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art (BFA) from Pratt Institute, he entered the prosthetics field and began making artificial limbs for amputees in New York. Along with a combined love for sculpture, medical-science, and biomechanics, the field enabled Chris to apply his natural talents to help amputees, which he did for 16 years as a certified prosthetist. Creating sculpture, purely for the sake of being sculpture, however, never escaped as his deepest passion. In 2008, he began his career as a full-time artist.
In March 2009 Chris was asked to speak, take questions, and display his work at an international technology and design conference in Sweden called Material Fusion. In June 2009 Chris loaned several of his sculptures to the oldest museum in the United States, the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass for a one-year exhibition.
