For the last sixteen years, Chris has been a funeral homeowner. In addition to learning many things about love, loss, and life, his entrepreneurial spirit drove him to create two websites from the ground up: first magillaloans.com and, more recently, funandmoving.com, a streaming exercise and rehab platform for those over sixty years of age and the infirm. Chris has a Juris Doctorate and Master’s in Environmental Law (Magna Cum Laude) from Vermont Law School and a BA in Politics and History from Brandeis University. He has been a licensed New York State attorney for over twenty-eight years.
Prior to his funeral life, he wrote, directed, and produced a low budget film called "Black is White". The feature length, race relations drama was written up in Variety as the film to watch from the Independent Feature Film Market in New York City. It was one of twelve international films chosen for the Rome Film Festival. When the film was not chosen for the Sundance Film Festival, Chris loaded up his car and moved to Hollywood to become a screenwriter. He made a living as a production assistant working for Herb Ritts, the premier fashion photographer of his time and on various studio lots.
He has been married for over twenty years and enjoys coaching his sons in various sports. He is also a member of the Kiwanis Club and Chamber of Commerce in his community.
