The producer won several awards including 2006’s Outfest Outstanding Emerging Talent award for his first feature film, “Fat Girls.” He actually starred and directed the movie when he was only 19.

In 2014, Christian was awarded the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Special-class Short-form Daytime Program for "mI Promise." He shared it with his producing partner, Clements.



Executive producers Scott Martin and Lauralee Bell also shared in the accolade. Clements and Christian were working on several new releases when he died.

These included the movie “Chick Fight” which features Alec Baldwin and “Paper Spiders.” His recent work was on “After Everything” with Yale Levine.



The late producer was born in Paris, Texas on January 16, 1985, and started his career by working in community theater. He started at the age of 14 to write and direct short films.


Two years later, he went to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. For his acting credit, he’s featured on “The Good Wife,” “Cleaners,” “Law & Order,” and many more.
