During his time as a student at ECU, Christopher had several premieres of his original work, including performances of his music by the ECU Chamber Singers, university musicians, and visiting guest artists. Notably, in his sophomore year, the chancellor’s office of ECU awarded Christopher a commission, which was premiered by the ECU Chamber Singers at the installation ceremony for Chancellor Cecil P. Staton. Upon graduating in May 2019, Christopher was awarded the "Outstanding Graduating Senior Award" in the area of  Music Theory, Composition, and Musicology.

In the summer of 2017, Christopher was accepted into a Film Scoring Workshop at New York University and began his journey into film scoring. In 2018, he was awarded the "Award of Excellence for Individual Achievement in Music" from the Southern Shorts Film Festival for his musical score for the short film, Deserted, directed by Denver Hollingsworth. In addition to his work with film, Christopher has collaborated with dancers on a variety of projects. He hopes to expand on his project, InterActive, which uses a variety of technologies to trigger musical sounds and effects from a dancer's movements.

Christopher has begun accepting more commissioned work and, below, you can find samples of his work as a composer, including a running list of compositions.
