Get better acquainted with this Instagram influencer and learn how he handles being an artist and a professional while entertaining a large following on Instagram.
Fancy: How would you describe your swagger? What makes Chris, Chris?
Christopher: I would describe my swagger as cool, calm, and collected. I am a very chill person but love to stand out when it is time to. What makes me, me? I would have to say, the Holy Spirit. He is my superpower and allows me to do and be everything that you see today. I give Him all the credit.
Fancy: At what age did you discover your creativity and which did you tap into first, your art or poetry?
Christopher: I discovered my creativity at a very early age, around 12 or so. It all started with drawing and creating my own YuGiOh cards as a kid and from there I was always in an art class. My interest and creativity in poetry did not begin until high school and college. With that being said they definitely work hand in hand now when it comes to expressing my creativity.
Fancy: You are a creative, yet you would go on to become an attorney, after being inspired by your father. Did you ever conflicted?
Christopher: Surprisingly no. I guess I always have been good at balancing all of my skills, talents, and ambitions. Although it can be very difficult at times, I have learned to standardize my time and focus on the task at hand. Don’t get me wrong there were times when I would wish I was doing something else other than the task at hand, but I ultimately knew that I was going to make time for each area.
Fancy: What inspires your art?
Christopher: Anything and everything- from dreams I may have to women to poetry to sports to a film to a photograph I may have seen. Inspiration is everywhere, we just have to be open to it.
Fancy: You’ve now evolved into an influencer. What’s that like?
Christopher: It is different. Being an influencer is a hustle like no other but I love that it allows me to combine the things that I love. It gives me an opportunity to use comedy, creativity, faith, and sports all at the same time. God willing, I can do this on a major level so that I can impact and bless lives in a phenomenal way.
Fancy: You share both your poetry and entertaining content. When you first began doing videos did you set out to be a content creator?
Christopher: Not directly- I just enjoyed just taking an idea or a blank canvas if you will, and making it come to life. As I excelled at creating and building content, becoming a content creator became a real and natural thing for me.
Fancy: What advice would you give to other content creators out there?
Christopher: Stay creative and keep posting! I look at creating content like a game. You can try new ideas out, sharpen your skills, and be as creative as you want to and see if it works. How do you determine if it works? Not by views or likes but by measuring it by your ability to take an idea from your head and see it materialize.
Make sure you do not define yourself and your worth based on the positive or negative feedback you get from social media. There will ALWAYS be people that will have positive things to say as well as negative things to say.
Fancy: What does a typical day look like for you?
Christopher: A typical day for me looks like prayer, working out, creating content, looking over legal documents/contracts, training people, painting, and listening to music all throughout the day.
Fancy: Do you enjoy any role particularly more than the others?
Christopher: Yes, most definitely. I would say that I enjoy painting, creating content and working out the most. I love pushing and stretching myself and my skills to become the best that I can become.
Fancy: What would you like to share with other multi-passionate Black men who may be torn between their natural gifts and their learned skills?
Christopher: I would say that IT IS POSSIBLE. It is possible to be and do everything that God has placed inside of you. In society, people will try to box you in and restrict your gifts or talents. But I am telling you, you can do it all. It will take a lot of work, don’t get me wrong but best believe you can be the; artist, athlete, scholar, musician, Man of God, trainer, attorney, ect. You are limitless, because of the God you serve!
Fancy: You don’t shy away from the topic of your virginity. What’s it really like to be a 28-year old virgin and how do you not compromise your beliefs?
Christopher: Not at all. However, I do not define my identity by it. It is a walk that God has called me to walk out.
Let’s just say it is not the easiest thing to do in 2022. It is a battle everyday but by the Grace of God I am making it through. The ability to deny my flesh for God is a skill that every person, especially every man must have in order to become the man that God has called them to be.
I don’t compromise my beliefs because of having accountability partners, staying in the Word, not putting myself in compromising situations, and also just focusing on experiencing what God has for me.
What do you have planned for 2022?
Christopher: I believe God has a lot planned for 2022. From lives/podcasts with amazing people to being a part of my first art show to traveling to new places to brand deals and collaborations to training taking off to just walking in the steps that God has ordered for me. I do not know exactly what is going to happen, but I am excited and ready for whatever God has for me.
