Chris is an actor and writer currently living in LA. He writes everything at fullpickle.com and chriswritesgood.com.
A native of Rhode Island, Chris O’Brien currently lives in North Hollywood, CA. He has a BA in English Literature and Theatre from Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI, which were really useful in his previous careers in retail and clinical data entry.
At the moment, Chris writes the blog "Chris Writes Good," the webcomics , ACTION FOOD, and Dinosandwich64, the webseries Pretty Shorts, and is also working on two screenplays, an animated pilot, a video game concept, and a children’s book.
As an actor, Chris is shooting high. Outside of usual milestones, Chris would like to be the first American actor to play Doctor Who and he’d like to be in anything where he gets to be a hockey player. His short term goals are to become successful enough that he can eat pizza whenever he wants and get offered a role in any Rooster Teeth series (not necessarily in that order).
Chris started writing and acting when he was fifteen and has been pursuing both professionally for about eight years. A few actors and writers Chris admires and looks up to include Jennifer Lawrence, Steve Martin, Donald Glover, Tina Fey, Douglass Adams, Arthur C. Clarke, Rinko Kikuchi, Michael J. Fox, Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, J. K. Rowling, Hayao Miyazaki, Christoph Waltz, Peter Dinklage, Idris Elba, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Hiddleston, and Conan O’Brien.
Chris grew up playing ice hockey, hoping to one day make it to the NHL and play for the Boston Bruins. Later, he realized that was a hopeless dream and decided that making it big as an actor was a much more realistic goal.
Aside from writing and acting, Chris is a vegetarian who hates salad but only because everyone always asks him “so, like, you must love salad, huh?” He loves ferrets and the fiction of Arthur C. Clarke, and feels indifferently about most other things.
Only exception for numbers one through nine being spelled numerically, besides for sport scores or a stat line, are in a headline i.e. 5 Reasons Why the Knicks Will Make the Playoffs.
Hope this helps
