Christopher Machado was born and raised in East Providence Rhode Island. Chris has always had a passion for the video arts. When he was young he got a video camera for Christmas and would make up stories to film with his friends, trying to direct them as he watched on from behind the lens. As the years went on and he grew older he still found himself filming with his friends, whether it be skateboarding or just filming funny sketches there was always a camera around. When he graduated High School he knew which direction he wanted to take next. He went to New England Institute of Technology and received an Associates degree in Video and Audio Production. With that degree he learned the tools necessary to turn his passion into a career, which led him to founding Lift Entertainment along with Chris Costa. He considers himself creative with a wild imagination, which is why he chose to pursue a career in filming so he could see his ideas become a reality.
