Chris M, was born in Melbourne 1976, and grew up in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. At the age of 18 he learnt to control his emotions through Chinese Martial arts, which gave him the foundations of Discipline, Determination and Desire. “Learning how to hurt people is easy” according to one of Chris’s teachers, if you want to be great, you must learn how to heal people. So this is where Chris embarked down the path of Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture, Massage and Pharmacology of which he has an Advanced Diploma in Health Sciences, and had further study in China.
Another discipline Chris pursued was the ancient Venetian art of hand made leather masks. Moreover this is where the relationship of the Comedia Dell ‘Arte and Carnival came to influence Chris’s Shows and Characters.
