Christian began his musical career at the age of 11. He attributes his early teaching of the blues and music theory to Chris BioPicRick Ellis (guitarist for Barbara Mandrell). Also, David Cook was instrumental in guiding Christian in stage presence, technique and work ethic. Then the love of alternative rock was born! Greg Daulton (who has worked with Killswitch Engage) has trained Christian both on rhythm and bass guitar. Justin Miller trained Christian on Alto Saxophone. His influences are Red, Three Days Grace, Killswitch Engage, Flyleaf and Evanescence and many more. Christian has headlined many large venues including The House of Blues-Disney.
