"There's a lot to recommend about Chris - he's passionate, has vision, and he works hard to realize that vision. Fallout: Lonestar is only one example - he's got a great design eye and the willingness to work hard to make that design happen."

"During the time I worked with Christopher, I was constantly struck by how easy he is to collaborate with. He welcomes ideas, criticisms, and suggestions and constantly puts the needs of the project above his own needs. As a leader Christopher goes out of his way to make his team members shine. In his creative work, Christopher's natural talent is sharpened by a deep understanding of narrative conventions and standards. Under his leadership, I learned a great deal about the importance of extensive research to fully understand my subject. He pays close attention to detail, a skill any team would benefit from."

"For a concept artist it is always a pleasure to create work based on interesting and unique ideas. That is why working with Christopher has been a great experience. Being a project lead he always stayed highly committed and organised, but his skill as a writer is one of the Christopher’s qualities that I value the most. In his work he combines broad knowledge of the topic with the ability to think outside of the box and a keen eye for details. Depth and realism are important factors for him, but he also makes sure the his creations are clear and easy to work with. Passionate and always willing to develop his skills, Christopher would be a valuable member of any team."

"When working with Christopher, it is very apparent that he cares about the work you do and he will go the extra mile to make everyone's job easier. I highly appreciated how open he was to everyone's ideas and how he was genuinely interested in your opinions and feedback. He was often the hub that connected many of the different departments, and would take the time to work with each one with the clear understanding that we are all working toward a common goal. He has a keen eye for design that always brings new ideas and provides a fresh perspective. The amount of passion and efforts he puts forth reads loud and clear in his work."

"I had the pleasure to work with Chris on Fallout: Lonestar for a brief period. He's got the rare gift of grand scale vision coupled with the necessary day-to-day skills of a writer in the trenches. Throw in an editor's eye, and you've got a triple-threat. He's not shy about offering feedback, both compliments and critiques, but always with a positive attitude aimed at making the project better - and you better in the process."
     -   Drew McGee, Lead Writer at Stoic

"In the stories Christopher has written for Pegasus News, he has proven himself to be a thorough and thoughtful writer. He became my go-to writer for arts-related content for Pegasus News, constructing both news stories and critical reviews. In both types of stories, Christopher proved to his reader that the research and interviews he did made him an informed storyteller. He never missed a deadline. I also recommend Christopher because he's an enjoyable person to work alongside. I give him a set of guidelines for every story, and he has followed my recommendations intently, often not needing extra direction. His self-starter attitude is one I wished all my freelancers had."

"Christopher worked diligently day after day, doing everything that was thrown his way without complaint. Christopher is an accomplished writer, and has a keen eye for detail when proofreading. He constantly thinks about how copy can be improved and updated to best fit the needs of the company. Christopher also has a high level of skill in graphic art, and creates a range of products within his professional and personal interests. He also has experience in design and implementation of marketing materials which fuse his writing and graphic skills. He knows a surprising amount of information on a wide variety of subjects and programs, and is always open to new suggestions while voicing his opinion clearly. Christopher often goes above and beyond the assigned task to make the best product possible. He is good at creating and maintaining working relationships with coworkers and superiors, and I recommend him to anyone looking for a copywriter with many additional transferable skills."
