Christopher James

Christopher James is a screenwriter and entertainment professional living in Cardiff, California. He has Celiac Disease.

Christopher previously worked as a U.S. Diplomat for thirteen years, including several abroad in Pakistan, Mexico, and Peru. Originally from New York City, Christopher grew up focused on finding a public service-oriented career. As it became consistently apparent that the majority of his counterparts outside the United States were basing their impressions of our country on what they see on television and in film, he realized there could be an opportunity to combine his experience in diplomatic service with his love of storytelling, and to play a role in the government-related content coming out of Hollywood that helps emphasize authentic and diverse aspects of the American experience.

Christopher has also worked at Creative Chaos, a Brooklyn-based production company, and as an independent story consultant. He is married with one child, and in his free time enjoys playing the drums, traveling, and devotedly following the Miami Dolphins.
