Christopher Caen

Writer

Born in the back room in one of the many tenement<br /> buildings in Pacific Heights, Christopher has always<br /> been of two minds about San Francisco. Although he<br /> works hard to maintain his street cred, he also is not<br /> above hanging with the upper crust, who tend to have<br /> better cocktail parties and free parking. He attended<br /> college at Stanford University where his creative<br /> writing teachers considered his writing the worst kind<br /> of sensationalism, leading to the inevitable<br /> unpublished first novel. His newspaper father was not<br /> amused. The San Francisco Newspaper Company finally<br /> made his sordid dreams a reality in 2004 with the<br /> launch of his columns in the San Francisco Examiner<br /> and the San Francisco Independent. As of yet, the<br /> earth has not tilted off its axis and western<br /> civilization seems safe for now. Then again, Rome<br /> burned in one night. Christopher now works for<br /> Theory Associates, a branding agency in San Francisco.
