Chris Reid is a voice artist and broadcaster in Winnipeg, Canada.

Since 2015, Chris has been an advocate, donor and theatre patron in Winnipeg. He has worked with community and professional theatre organizations to help with marketing including videos, social media and graphic design and advertising.
