Christian grew up in the creative arts. Youngest child of one of the worlds leading stunt performers – James Bond / Where Eagles Dare / Avengers – and an acrobat mother, much of Christian’s childhood was spent at film studios, theaters, and in the circus.
Christian started out conceptualizing, producing, and co-directing music videos for a host of international recording artists before relocating from London to Cape Town in the early 90’s.
Once in Cape Town he focused on commercial production, and produced / executive produced more than 500 hundred television commercials for brands such as Bentley, Volkswagen, Mexx, Barclaycard, Thomas Cook, Guinness, BMW, Rochas, Max Factor, Kodak, Honda and O2.
In 2006 Christian accepted the role of production manager on the Roland Emmerich helmed Warner Bros. picture 10’000BC, a demanding role managing a significant budget shooting over 3 continents.
