Mini Bio (1)

Christopher's love of acting and movie making began as a child. From elementary school through high school, he would direct films for class projects or act in various plays and musicals in the school's theatre.

In 2003, Christopher directed, edited, and scored his first "fan-film" entitled "Halloween: Evil's Reign." The fan-film was a full length feature, shot on Hi-8, that was screened at the "Halloween Returns to Haddonfield" 25th Anniversary Convention in Pasadena. During this time, Gomez was studying cinema production at Chaffey Community College in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

Between 2005 to 2011, Christopher had been working for the City of Beverly Hills, while simultaneously working at Universal Studios, Hollywood as a performer, background work in major motion pictures, and acting in regional theatre productions throughout the L.A. and Inland Empire areas.

His position at the City of Bevery Hills from 2006-2010 was that of a video production assistant for the city's government municipal cable channel. It was at this job that he began an association with film director Richard Gale ("Horribly Slow Murderer with the Inefficient Weapon," "Pressure") and in 2006, collaborated with Gale for the, widely acclaimed, short horror film "Criticized."

In 2007, through the City of Beverly Hills, Gomez received a Los Angeles Emmy award for "Best Public Service Announcement." This project was also in collaboration with Gale, who directed the PSA, and others within the department. In the PSA, entitled "Do You Know CPR?", Gomez had helped with casting and P.A. work, as well as having a brief on screen appearance. That same year, Christopher shot "Our Lady of Paris," a dark, and faithful, adaptation of the Victor Hugo novel "Notre-Dame de Paris." While various stills and clips exist online, the film has never officially been released.

Back in 2005, Christopher had mounted a one-man show where he re-enacted the entire film "Superman II: The Adventure Continues." The live 2 hour performance was a charity event to raise money, and donate the ticket sales to the American Red Cross for victims of Hurricane Katrina. Through the advice of actress Margot Kidder (who had played Lois Lane in the movie), Christopher once again mounted another, improved, production of the one-man show in 2010. This time performing in Orange County and raising money for the victims of the earthquake in Port-Au Prince, Haiti. There are plans to mount the show again within the Los Angeles area.

Christopher still resides in Southern California and continues to act both in front of the camera and on the professional stage.
