A Big Heart
I first met Chris when his dad, Ed introduced him to me at my casting office in Phily. Ed was so proud of his son and spoke highly of what a smart guy he was. Chris was just getting involved in the acting industry. This was back in '95 . He interned at my place, took acting classes and was so dynamic wanting to learn everything he could. He helped us so much in the office, couldn't do enough. Later he moved onto teaching at MBIT and called me to speak to a few of his classes. It was clearly apparent how much his students looked up to him. The excitement and pride he had for his students was unlike anything I had seen. He certainly used his God-given gift in using his life for the betterment of others. That's not a statement I make lightly. We all have challenges in life however to push above and beyond them and continue to give BIG like Chris is a rare trait. His legacy is felt in many hearts. I was blown away by the number of postings on facebook. A true testament to what his life meant to people whose lives he touched.
