Chris Gumprich was born in Winnipeg in 1974, and has been writing almost as long. He made his full-size comic debut with EVENING SHIFT, released in May 2004. His work has appeared in numerous print and web publications.

Following a stint as an associate editor with Unbound Comics, Chris formed Arctic Star Studios in 2002. After publishing a few books under that banner, the studio name was dropped in 2005.

In 2007 Chris decided to take a sabbatical from writing, and embark on a new career as an amateur voice actor for satellite audio drama productions.

In 2010 Chris rekindled his musical interest, and started playing bass guitar. He is a member of blues-rock-folk trio The Shoulds.

Chris is also a local historian with a deep interest in movie theatres, and contributed research to the book Silver Screens on the Prairie by Russ Gourluck.

By day Chris works as a programmer analyst for a local credit union. He is also a certified Project Manager.

He's married to an incredibly patient and understanding woman. They have two children and are just starting to learn that creative weirdness is genetic.
