Just who is Christopher Schiller? Good question. And one that is impossible to answer on a simple web page.
I could describe how I worked for two decades in the television and Internet production arenas, acquiring the technical skills and understanding in a broad array of areas to develop a full understanding of the intricacies and demands of production from a hands on perspective.
I could mention that I was graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy with a minor in Computer Science to articulate the logical and global perspective I bring to all dilemmas in order to see new and better solutions.
I could speak of the over twenty year marriage I have had with a wonderful woman and how grounded and centered a moral compass this gives me in my personal life.
Or I could mention the creative elements I have dabbled in, the short films, screenplays and poetry I've created to show how I can truly understand the creative mind-set and how it has to deal with the real world issues it confronts.
I could say all this and all of it would be true, but, it would scarcely sum up who I am and what I can do for those who seek my assistance. It just might give them some perspective, though and give the curious a peek into the complex and dedicated character who would willingly come to the aid of those who are in need.
