An American who has been working in Japan for 24 years.
According to Tom Mes’s book RE-AGITATOR about Miike Takashi, “Christian is one of the few foreigners who can claim to be a true insider in the world of Japanese film. As an actor, writer, dialogue coach and translator, he has gained a unique insight and familiarity both in front of and behind the camera. He is a regular and close collaborator of Takashi Miike.”
As a producer with production experience in over 70 projects, he has spearheaded many Japan related TV shows for networks like the BBC (Top Gear), Fox (America’s Next Top Model), the Discovery Channel, and AXN (The Amazing Race Asia) as well as commercials for NIKE and Apple.
In sports, he was the ENG producer for FIFA TV covering the Japan team in 2010 and 2014.
He is the owner/line producer of Local 81 (local81.jp), a Tokyo based TV/film production company.
