My goals are best served elsewhere now--other than ChrisHaskell.com.
Such as: https://resumes.ActorsAccess.com/chrishaskell
"Goal," you ask ?? Goals to promote myself via wild-eyed egomania / via blatant self-aggrandizement / "creative writing" (read: "bald-faced lies") crafted around that Facebook meme "May your life be [even a fraction] as terrific
as you [strain, grope, grimace and grovel to]
try to leave the impression on Facebook"
Actor - Narrator - Host - Broadcaster - Public Speaking Coach - Guest Speaker - Seminar Leader
(Also note one address doesn't work at all--"CHRISTOPHERHaskell.com"--
a domain name we long owned but which is now in contention.)
If we met briefly, probably just "ChrisHaskell.com" was fastest to remember--
so here we are.
FACEBOOK: TAB on upper LEFT gets you to "Photos-Albums-For Casting Directors."
IMDB: Likewise, I've long been online on the other "usual suspects"--CAZT, NowCasting, etc.
ACTORS ACCESS: the TAB sometimes works--more often if you're a member.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------FACEBOOK's ubiquity allows greater self delusion AND self aggrandisement re:
(1.) CREDITS (outlandishly overblown distortions) +
(2.) REELS & PHOTOS ....... PHOTOS !!!? (THOSE are heavily EDITED--me, trying to look:
closer to George Clooney,
less like the shot on my driver's license or
DEFINITELY less like that famous one of Nick Nolte
(often mis-labeled a Malibu Police Dept. "mug shot"--not so says my neighbor; it was allowed to be taken--as a kind gesture BY Nick--to a tourist at our police station here in Malibu).
Likewise... rather than "ChrisHaskell.com" there has emerged:
on which I've long exaggerated about myself, stretching truth for YEARS--
Facebook is better currently for laying it on thick about my:
Acting. ... in NY, NY - LA - Boston - Rancho Cucamonga
................Okay--never worked a Rancho Cucamonga room--it's just a funny California name.
But HAVE worked in 6 West African countries (on land and shipboard), NY, LA, Boston, Denver, DC, etc.--in fields including:
Film Industry Technical Advising.
Media Relations / Public Information Officer / Advertising / Public Relations--
Internationally in war & peace, at sea & ashore (Vietnam, Desert Storm before, during & after combat).
YouTube gives some "quick takes" of my voice-over styles--the national commercials series "The Girls of SPIKE TV 'Guide to Romance'" (TV advertisements, Trojans, on-air / online).
The "REVIEWs !!?!!!":
"...you'll 'need a cigarette' after hearing Chris' SEXY voice on these commercials."
.......................okay......I made that up;
it was creative genius Director Matt Klauschie of SPIKETV / MTV + the talented actresses who made those Trojans commercials SIZZLE--"Buttering the 'Muffins'" etc.
(Also--thanks to other people--it is true: An LA acting teacher of mine, the late Sam Christensen (M*A*S*H casting director, The Sam Christensen Process founder) arrived at my essences including "Let me soothe you." "Pleasure Giver."
And--my favorite 'cause it originated from a gorgeous talented classmate babe--"Old leather, rich cashmere and the smell of coffee.")

Subject matter expertise includes: my work with war correspondents--as a reserve public affairs officer, navy specifically, military generally /

Also, I ........uh........ solved world hunger, achieved global peace & am The Universe's gift to women & even my witty wife agrees to that under some circumstances bless her heart...but I digress.
"Comedy is difficult..." and we actors-writers ...... legendary..........chisled and BUFF by the way......oooooooh yeah..........we got 'o believe in ourselves.
