Portrait of Christopher


Christopher was unemployed because he had medical problems. About a year prior to this interview, he had a valve placed in his heart. He also had issues with his kidneys. He was getting better, though.

Christopher said this was a rough time in his life. Prior to having health problems, he was a tree trimmer for fifteen years.

Christopher grew up in San Fernando Valley, California, USA, but had been living in Antelope Valley for about five years. He met a woman and he moved to live with her.

When Christopher’s health declined, so did his relationship, and they split up.

Christopher claimed, “I’m kind of a quiet guy.”
