Christopher is a native of Gloucester, Massachusetts. An elementary school teacher noticed his talent and encouraged him to pursue theater as an after school activity. He performed in all but one school play in high school (after a short-lived attempt at high school football). Christopher also began working at the Gloucester Stage Company, a local theater founded by Israel Horovitz in 1979. In 2004, he earned his B.F.A. in Acting from Boston University’s School of Theatre. After two years working as a bouncer in New York City, Christopher moved to Los Angeles.
His television credits include Dexter (Showtime), Parks and Recreation (NBC), Criminal Minds (CBS) and Raising Hope (FOX). He will also be featured in the upcoming film Evidence starring Stephen Moyer and Radha Mitchell. In the summer of 2012, Christopher performed in the US premier of Kieran Lynn’s An Incident at the Border at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica, CA. He has studied with Brad William Henke, Lindsay Crouse, The Art of Acting Studio, Upright Citizens Brigade and Improv Olympic.
Christopher is a self-taught guitar player and an obsessive Boston sports fan. He also hosts weekly trivia nights in bars across Los Angeles.
