I am ready to meet with actors of all ages and experience levels. This business is fast moving and can be vague at times leaving you wondering what could you have done differently if you didn't book the job. I want you to succeed, but first you need the proper tools to get to that next level of your career. From my experience of working in LA and Chicago as well as drawing from previous instructors, you will learn more than just basic acting exercises. Gain an upper hand on your contemporaries!
About Christian C.

I am currently working on my Theatre Education Degree (K-12) from Illinois State University. I have successfully attained 3 comprehensive background checks for my teaching observation hours and soon will be student teaching in the Spring of 2022. I was a working actor in Chicago from 2003-2019 and have been a member of SAG/AFTRA since 2009. When I graduated from Illinois State University in 2003, I hit the ground running and worked with Chicago Dance Crash for 3 years as a company member. I solidified my theater acting muscles for 4 years before moving to LA in 2007 and worked on 2 films, Heist and Ingles Ya in addition to national commercials for Soapnet, Gaterade and Pepsi, just to name a few. My most recent film, Markham Tactical premiered on August 6th, 2016 in Chicago. I also made my TV show debut in 2010 on Chicago Code. I followed that up with appearances on Mob Doctor, Crisis, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Empire and Chicago Med. My theater work has included stops at Steppenwolf Theater, The Goodman Theater, Chicago Shakespeare, Timeline Theater, Lifeline Theater, Illinois Theater Center. At the present time, I am hard at work for the Illinois Shakespeare Festival (Measure for Measure and The Winter's Tale illinoisshakes.com).

I have taken Acting with Christian for about a month now. He is truly passionate about what he does and pushed his students forward to succeed. Compare to my first lesson, I felt more confident in myself to get into character and expressing it out. He went above and beyond in explaining every little detail to help in every step of the way. He is one of the best teacher so far that I have taken on TakeLesson. I look forward to every lessons, plus they are quite fun!
