Chris Hill founded Slixer twenty years ago. At the time it was well-known he was brilliantly talented but hopelessly unemployable. Fresh from university and armed with bravado and a "valuable" Theatre Arts degree he ventured off to become the next 'A' List actor. Three days later; after realizing the futility of such a quest, he decided to start something that was fun, engaging and required no boss. His passion quickly turned to murder! Slixer was born and Murder, Mystery & Mayhem was the order of the day. Wanting more and hearing the sounds of crickets in the summer months, Chris then took a stab at adding even more interesting and unique events that would hold-off that job-hunt forever. Success!
