Christopher B. Portley
Christopher was born and raised in Dallas, Texas where his southern roots never get far behind him wherever he is. Its what keeps him grounded. Growing up, singing was his first passion before acting whether it was in the grocery store or at church; music stirs and leads his heart. Christopher is currently finishing up his third and final year with Case Western Reserve Cleveland Play House MFA Acting Program, after finishing he will be heading to New York City. He is a story teller and as a black man in this field, he is passionately enlisted in the fight for a richer cannon. Stories where authenticity and truth breathe unapologetically is where Christopher wants to permeate his artistry to light the way for the next generation of story tellers that look like him.
