Writing has been a part of Chris Stead’s life since he was very young. In fact, he won the “creative writing” award way back in Year 3 at school as a seven-year-old. During his senior school years, Chris wrote constantly, be it stories while he was sitting at his desk in class not concentrating on the teacher, or writing up news reports on all the sports and experiences the kids in his local neighbourhood enjoyed every day.
By the time he left school in 1996, he had already started a website, and was writing reviews and opinions on user-created content for video games. This would lead to work as a contributor to a number of leading magazines and websites through the remainder of the nineties while he completed a degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics at the University of Sydney.
