Christopher is the Founder & CEO of the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival (WCFF). He is a veteran environmental and marine scientist. Early in his career he was science teacher and later an administrator. At the time he was the youngest Principal for a public school in the state of Florida. While a graduate student, Christopher conducted fieldwork and research to study the Pleistocene Mega fauna fossils that were deposited over 10,000 years ago. His study of these extinct species informs his concerns for preserving biodiversity and was a significant factor in the founding of the WCFF. Christopher was one of the first scientists to conduct underwater vertebrate paleontology research. He is a professional, advanced scuba diver with over 2,500 logged dives. Christopher single-handed launched the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival in 2010. Since that time the WCFF has grown from a one day event to a ten day film festival and biodiversity conference. The WCFF is now identified as the premiere wildlife film festival and on the planet and one of the most important events to inform people to preserve global biodiversity. Christopher is a wildlife photographer, documentary film producer, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. He is a philanthropic supporter of multiple wildlife conservation organizations across the globe. He is also President of the International Exploration Society. Previously he was a Steering Committee of the Junior Council, American Museum of Natural History, Board Member of the National Aquarium Advocates and Chairman, University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology
