Chris Aldridge is an American Hellenic Polytheist, writer, public speaker, Priest, historian, Mythologist, Theologian, philosopher, civil rights activist, and an environmentalist. He was born in 1984 in Asheboro, North Carolina, and grew up in the nearby city of Thomasville, living there for 25 years before moving to northern Illinois in late 2012 with his wife and son.

His specific religious denomination is Pan-Hellenic (All-Hellenic), as he incorporates a wide variety of ancient Hellenic worship from many different localities and city-states of the ancient Grecian world; he is also considered a Reconstructionist and is a proud member of the renowned American Hellenic organization Hellenion. An extremely reverent and pious person, Chris is completely devoted to his religion.

Chris is the author of several books, articles and blog posts on Hellenic Polytheism and his personal experiences in his religious and spiritual life, some of which have been featured in the Pagan publication Circle Magazine. He also publishes fictional works, and enjoys writing a wide range of genres such as general fiction, flash fiction, mythology, horror, drama, romance, comedy, history and general non-fiction. He is a consistent writer for the Ohio publication Dark Dossier, and has had his science fiction published in Mad Scientist Journal.

In his daily life, Chris loves praying and doing ritual at his personal shrines and sanctuaries, and in his spare time enjoys visiting his home state, strolling about Chicago, and playing war games.
