Hi, I’m Chris Higgins. I make videos, produce podcasts, record sound, take professional headshots, and write articles. You can hire me for any of these. You may know me from the Election Ride Home Podcast, my writing for Mental Floss, or from This American Life. If you’d like to hear what I’m up to, please sign up for my email list.
Right now, I’m raising money on Kickstarter for Best of Five: The Classic Tetris Champions. This is a documentary series I’ve been working on for six years, and I need your help to push it past the finish line. Please check it out and help me make this thing a reality.
In the past few years, I’ve made a bunch of videos for independent artists funding their work via Kickstarter and Patreon. Want to talk about working on a project together? Use the contact form or find me on Twitter. (My DMs are open.)
I’m also a freelance writer, podcaster, and radio reporter. I’ve reported stories for This American Life, The Atlantic, Mental Floss, The Week, Business Insider (sorry!), The Magazine, Oregon Business Magazine, Aquarium Fish, The Portland Mercury, The Techmeme Ride Home, and probably a lot that I’m forgetting.
I’ve written, consulted on, shot for, and appeared in some documentaries: Access, Ecstasy of Order: The Tetris Masters, The Lost Arcade, This is Not a Conspiracy Theory, The Adults in the Room, and The Pull. I also have a few projects in development.
In a past life, I developed iPhone and iPad games. I also served as Time Travel Consultant for Ransom Riggs, helping him define some of the time-related “rules” behind the original Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children book. I am available for this work too, but I should warn you that it’s extremely costly, and you must bring your own weapons.
