My name is Christopher Rivas. I’m a disruptor, I disrupt what is with the possibility of what can be. I’m a storyteller, educator, consultant, writer (NYT’s, SwipeLife), actor, podcast host, and speaker based in Los Angeles, California.
Human narratives are my single greatest passion. I work with companies and communities all over the world using the power of personal and socially responsible storytelling to craft and unlock messages and stories that matter.
I've spoken for, consulted, and developed storytelling work for The WWE, United Nations High Commission for Refugees, Iconexión, Loqules, Hollywood Heart Foundation, LAUSD, LAMP on Skid Row, Safe Place For Youth, The Museum Of Broken Relationships, The Skirball Cultural Center, Unplug Meditation Studio, Soul Hum, UCLA, CalArts, Agape International Spiritual Center, The House of Intuition, Upworthy, and Soulpancake.
Long story short, I am in love with story.
I’m a disruptor. I disrupt what is with the possibility of what can be. So it comes alive and becomes vital in a whole new way.
Story, defined: Everything is a story, one we've been made to believe or one we’ve chosen to believe; knowing the difference is profound. It is essential to tell our own stories or we will forever believe someone else’s.
