Who Am I?

My name is Christopher Matthew Josemaria Escriva Perez-Merino (please call me Chris).

I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to a family working office jobs in government and social services. However, my grandparents worked with their hands, constructing entire farms and businesses from the ground up. At age 10, I visited one of my grandfather's workplaces and felt energy rush through me as I saw everything being built. That passion flowed into theatre and became the main focus throughout my career.

Since then, I have received my BFA in Theater from Randolph College (VA) and moved to Florida to work full-time within shops and schools across the United States. My journey has led me to work with the American Shakespeare Center, the Des Moines Metro Opera, and most recently, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey.
