Chris was born in Detroit, Michigan, but was brought up in the city of St. Clair Shores, Michigan. His parents, Mark and Kathy Kapcia, made it a point to let Chris do whatever his heart desired, and between the ages of 5 and 16 years old, he played a number of organized sports.

"dedicated to his love and interests, and that included both sports and meteorology. After graduating from elementary school, he moved onto Lakeview High School. As a freshman, he was still very much into sports and also science. During the summer of his sophomore year he decided to make a bold decision to stop playing sports and take up acting, no matter what anyone said. He was in his first play, The Curious Savage, as Jeffrey, while he was in his junior year. Chris really grew to love acting, that being said; he stuck with it throughout high school and into college. In his sophomore year, while attending Macomb Community College, he was cast in The Dining Room, which lead him into auditioning for an independent film and getting a feature role as a karaoke host in Love and Plutonium in 2003, which then lead him into a lead role for Broadway On-Stage in a play called Cliff Hanger. After completing these shows and film, he realized that acting was what he was going to do for the rest of his life. He wanted to forever change his audiences by taking this profession up. In 2004, he was lucky enough to have heard about the auditions for The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Washington D.C. He made, yet another bold decision to audition for an acting conservatory because of his attraction to performing. He was accepted in 2004 and has recently graduated from the Academy Company 2007. He is currently residing in New York City, auditioning as much as he can.
