Chris’s Bio

One of a few male sitters and proud of it! Originally I'm from Orange County, CA. Moved to NYC for school to study theatre. I'm 26 and have been on Sitter City for eight years. I've babysat for about twelve families since I've moved to NYC age ranges from 18 months - 10 years. I used to work in the Character Department at Disneyland, so I have wonderful stories to tell your children! I've also worked at a Boys and Girls Club where I a started a musical theatre program for ages 7-14. In addition I worked with kids at a local church performing bible skits and such for two years before I moved. I've worked at Kidville doing birthday parities for ages 1-6, and I also taught ballet for 18-24 months. I've worked with Camp Broadway teaching 9-13 year olds. I'm also a part time graduate student in Educational Theatre at City College. I've also had two months of professional development from the Syracuse school District for elementary school settings. Currently, I teach after school for elementary students in Park slope.

When sitting, I love to play games and get to know them other than watching tv. I genuinely enjoy working with children and am active sitter who will get down on the floor to play. The things I enjoy doing with the children is Reading books, Doing Arts and Craft Projects, Puzzles, Taking them to the Park, Museums, libraries, and Barnes and Noble. I also LOVE making movie trailers with kids using my iPad. I am a very fun, energetic, loving and reliable individual. I'm also a patient, but firm homework helper. Please feel free to contact me to learn more about me and my experience. If this sounds like a potentially good fit, I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you.

Chris is extremely reliable and trustworthy. He has babysat for my 4 children (ranging in age from 3 to 10) several times, on each occasion my mind has been at ease.

Chris cares for our 5 year old daughter and our 1 year old son. He is dependable, professional, and very nurturing with our children. I have had parents go out of their way to tell me how attentive and caring Chris is with our children when I am away. Our son is struggling with separation anxiety, but Chris is always tender and reassuring. Most importantly, our children feel happy, safe, and loved with him. He comes highly recommended.

Chris is very dependable and I always feel at ease when we leave our 18 month old with him. It nice to come home to a sleeping baby and picked up house. Chris follows our instructions and is always kind and professional.

Chris came to us for babysitting our nine-month-old girl for the weekend, and he bonded with our little picky girl within minutes. He had a great way with her, and was able to get her to eat more at mealtimes- a fussy transitional period of finger foods, messy utensil use, and baby stubbornness. Chris was caring and gentle with our infant, but he also showed her how fun it could be to practice some new big girl independence. Our daughter enjoyed pretty much every moment with him.
My husband and I would recommend Chris for babysitting or nannying, and we would not hesitate to call him again should we need a sitter.

Chris has a great energy and my three boys, ages 8 1/2, 6 and 3 really enjoy when he is babysitting. He has picked my boys up from school and dropped them off at an afterschool class and then played with the little guy while I got stuff done. He is creative and fun! He really engages them and meets them at their level. I highly recommend him.

Responsible and punctual male sitter

Chris has been transporting my son on the subway to and from school quite a distance for several months now. He has been a great relief for me as someone who can reliably take on this task. My son has enjoyed his company and feels comfortable with him. Chris has been on time each and every morning (very early mornings, mind you.)

It's great to have a male influence as a sitter for my young son. Chris is responsible, trustworthy, and great at following up and keeping the parent in the loop.

Great sitter!

Chris was a great sitter for my two boys (ages 4 and 7). He connected with the boys immediately, was fun but firm, and extremely enthusiastic. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris!

Wonderful special needs caregiver

Chris is a wonderful special needs caregiver. He handles all challenges that come with a severely handicapped teenager well. He has a great connection with my son and is friendly and fun to have around. A pleasure to work with.
