Christopher is the head of the Crimes and Accidents News department. He’s a third-generation New Yorker with a passion for journalistic objectivity. Christopher (always "Christopher", never "Chris!) grew up living every kid's dream: his father owned a comic book shop in East Brooklyn. But don't presume that the heroic characters in spandex were the ones who made him fascinated with the Crime vs Punishment concept. Christopher was more interested in the non-superhero comics like Tank Girl and Maus. In the 8th grade he already knew what he was about to do in this life, which was investigative journalism that he would later successfully study in Columbia. Christopher then returned to New York to work as a stringer. Those adrenaline-filled times were equally nerve-wracking and amazing; the only thing that made him settle down was marrying his beloved wife of 10 years. Crime reporting remains Christopher's specialty and biggest passion. That, and not being called "Chris".
