Christopher "Uncle Chris" Espinosa Christopher Espinosa attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, where he studied advertising and art. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1991, he returned to his hometown of Corpus Christi to begin his career in advertising. Christopher did not find the work in his chosen field to be creatively satisfying, and soon began performing in local community theatre productions. Before long, he had created his own comedy troupe and was writing and performing shows regularly throughout the city.
After relocating to the Dallas/Fort Worth area in 1998, Mr. Espinosa began to study improv with Randy Bennett, whose other pupils include such well-known celebrities as Phil Hartman, Jon Lovitz, and Elvira Mistress of the Dark. Around this same time, he also began writing scripts and plays based on his family life. Several of his works have been produced and performed in the Metroplex.
In 2000, Christopher began working as a professional storyteller at elementary schools throughout the United States. It was at this time that he discovered his true passion performing for children. Although he enjoyed traveling to other states, Mr. Espinosa felt there was a need for a book that would inspire children in his home state to learn more about Texas. He set out to create a book that would do just that.
With the publication of Rocket Megabyte's Texas Adventure in 2002, Christopher was able to combine his love of writing, drawing, and performing into a successful and rewarding career. In the last several years, Chris has visited over 200 schools across the state while entertaining and educating in excess of 90,000 students. In addition, he has been a guest author and/or speaker at various conferences, conventions, writers' groups, and other literary events.
Finally, Chris is also presently working on another book about Rocket Megabyte's next adventure. Stay tuned for details!
