Consultant, Digital Marketer, and Content Writer in London, UK
Hello, I’m Chris. I’m a Senior Marketing Consultant & Content Writer living in London, UK.
I am a fan of photography, technology, and travel. I’m also interested in arts and fashion.
Chris Bicourt grew up in South London. He spent most of his time climbing trees, skateboarding, cycling, playing tennis and football.
As a child, Chris Bicourt had a vivid imagination. He loved to draw Dragons and Spaceships. Chris was obsessed with the sword and sorcery genre and science fiction (a passion which he maintains today). Chris loved to write stories and poems. He wrote scripts for his own plays and directed his first play (as Chris Bicourt). It featured in the annual end of year production at his primary school. He was 11. It incorporated all the sword and sorcery tropes he was obsessed with at that time.
By age 6 Christopher Bicourt could count in binary! He and was also pretty good at algebra. This was because his dad bought him a BBC Model B microcomputer but wouldn’t let him buy any games. Instead, Chris bought books to learn how to code them himself. By age 15, Chris had created many computer games. They were widely circulated in the school computer lab.
Throughout his teens, Christopher Bicourt played Basketball. He trained with the Crystal Palace basketball club under-19 team.
His other love during secondary school was hip-hop. He thoroughly familiarised himself with the culture at the time. Chris would spend days writing rap lyrics on everything from bedraggled notebooks to the back of one-day travelcards. Chris would later go on to join and produce the group, “Dem Lot”. He adopted the alias "MC Drama". Many ad hoc and spontaneous appearances followed, as a guest MC at open-mic events across the country.
At age 18 Chris pursued his love of film and art at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication. There he directed a number of short films, documentaries and music videos. One was “Marathon Runner” - an instructional video on how to train and run the London Marathon. It featured Britain’s best long distance runner at the time, Paul Evans. He also directed a Music Video for a Birmingham-based rap group called "MSI Asylum". It went on MTV and The Box. Later he produced, “A Kenya Wedding”. This was a documentary about a traditional wedding in Kenya attended by over 3000 people.
