Director & Co-Founder
Chris is a humanitarian and filmmaker. He’s best known for directing and producing the feature films Living On One Dollar and Salam Neighbor. His films have been released by Netflix, National Geographic, Starz, and The Atlantic and featured at AFI Docs, CPH:DOX, and Seattle International Film Festivals.
Every film and commercial he makes has a purpose. Each is accompanied by an impact campaign to create measurable and sustainable outcomes. His projects have raised over $91.5 million dollars for the film’s causes. For his efforts, he was recognized alongside Bill Gates and Angelina Jolie as one of the Top 100 Visionary Leaders of 2015 by WPO/YPO’s Real Leaders Magazine and given the 2016 Muslim Public Affairs Annual Media award alongside Hassan Minaj.
Chris has a love-hate relationship with public speaking. Having given over 300 keynotes — they haven’t gotten any less terrifying.
