Christian was born in Australia and it appeared at first as though he might be following in his famous father's footsteps and become an actor.

He appeared alongside his famous dad in We Were Soldiers in 2002 and then a short film two years later called Billy's Day Out.

Christian has since moved behind the camera predominately working out of California and Mexico as a steady-cam operator.

He also has found work as a landscape photographer especially creating images of his native Australia.
