Portraits With | Chris Thompson

I found Chris on YouTube in the glory days - when Tyler Oakley's channel intro was a time-lapse of tying his tie, and when Audible just started sponsoring content-creators. Chris actually has two channels - SupDaily06 for daily (read: used to be daily) videos, and one for his cover songs and music videos. When you watch someone that often, you start to feel like you know them. True to form, Chris has a heart of pure gold, infectious laughter, and a sly sense of humor anyone can appreciate.

Chris has taken on partnerships in virtual reality video content and begun flying his drone on his travels. Somewhere in the crazy that is this his blogging and LA adventures, Chris took on adopting his first puppy, Wrigley. His "adventure pup," Wrigley inspired Chris and showed him new ways to love. In a tragic turn of events, Wrigley was hit by a car, which understandably devastated Chris.

Turning this heartache into an act of love and generosity, Chris is mid-travel on a more than 30-stop road trip, setting up meetups for his audience and more to gather and collect supplies for each city's humane societies and animal rescues. One of his early stops was Seattle, and I had to reach out.

Whether it was his candid videos on relationships, tearful expressions of his support for the LGBT community, or covers of my favorite Backstreet Boys songs, I always saw that Chris had an amazing heart and put that into everything he did. 

After you watch that link (and find his Bruno Mars covers), I urge you to check out his schedule for future stops so you can meet Chris and his friends, and support his cause. Check out Road Trip for Wrigley here and help out his ambitious cause.

Along the way, Chris is posting events on Facebook for each stop, with specific needs of each organization in that city, and Amazon Wish Lists to match. He is also highlighting dogs at each shelter that need a forever home, and helping to show off those pups that are often wrongfully overlooked like older dogs and pit bulls.

Chris and I took some portraits while he was here, at Seattle's Gas Works Park. Check them out here, and find us both on Instagram, at @supdaily and @dylan.cr2.
