THIRD PERSON TALK /


Friday, November 16th, 1984, a young boy named Christopher William Hansen was born in the great state of California. Chris spent most of his adolescence in Huntington Beach, CA playing video games, watching too much TV, reading comic books, and drawing. Those were the simple things in life that he truly enjoyed.

Fast forward many years, and not much has changed - he still does all those things, but now lives in Costa Mesa, CA, drinks too much coffee, is a bit horror movie obsessed, believes in the straight edge lifestyle, and spends his life with his wife Madison, their two sons Nolan and Greyson, and their 2 pugs Dahmer (yes that Dahmer) and Julian.
