Christopher “Topher” Sanderson had a simple, suburban upbringing on the West Coast of the United States. He grew to love taking photos and telling stories. He turned this into a career as a photojournalist. With a sense of adventure, he set out to explore the world. He ended up stranded in war torn Chernarus after the outbreak and now tries every day simply to survive. It is a tough existence compared to his old life, but keeping to himself and keeping out of trouble have managed to work well for him so far. He hopes to survive, day by day, night by dark night and, one day, return home and return to a world of sanity.
