Chris Jaymes: Huntington Beach, California
Chris Jaymes, Writer and Director
Huntington Beach, California

Born in Sothern California, Chris Jaymes spent most of his childhood in Huntington Beach. The writer and director had an eclectic eduational career, which included attending Berklee College of Music and living in a loft in downtown Los Angeles with a group of musicians and skateboarders, including Jason Lee (My Name is Earl) and Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots). Jaymes went on to become a multiple award-winning writer, director, producer, actor, and musician. In his nearly three decades of working in the entertainment industry, he has been a member of the Capitol Records recording artist band Bootstraps; acted in such projects as Lost, Party of Five, and Chicago Hope; wrote, produced, and directed the multiple award-winning film, In Memory of My Father, and directed numerous films and TV shows.

Sons of Chaos, a lavishly illustrated graphic novel, is Chris's latest creative endeavor. Illustrated by Ale Aragon, Sons of Chaos is the heartrending story of the Greek War of Independence--the war that quietly shaped the Western world. This over-sized graphic novel provides an immersive, panoramic experience for readers, transporting them back to the Mediterranean shores of 1821 as seen through the eyes of Marcos Botsaris, the son of a respected Greek leader taken prisoner as a child and raised in the dungeons of history’s most infamous Ottoman Pasha, Ali Pasha of Ioannina, known as the “Napoleon of the East."

“My hope is that Sons of Chaos will introduce this extraordinary undertaking and bring awareness and stimulate further curiosity to the Greek Revolution… And hope more than anything you enjoy the experience that has been meticulously belabored for quite some time, in honor of those that sacrificed so much, that we may often take for granted, " Chris Jaymes.
