Sleepnever.com creator Christopher Kostrzak was raised in Chicago and now snatches breaths between adventures in dirty pretty Los Angeles.

On top of producing sleepnever.com, Kostrzak is the co-creator and executive producer of “The Butcher’s Daughter,” a responsible eating/cooking show featuring Julia Jaksic, (executive chef of Employees Only and creator of Dinner Club NYC) now in development at Animal Planet through Karga Seven Pictures.

During the summer of 2008, Kostrzak toured the U.S. and Canada and simultaneously produced and released a duo of the first ever “ride along” downloadable documentaries “Seize The Days” for Atlantic Recording Artist Kill Hannah and “The Last Road Trip” for Sleepnever.com. Kill Hannah’s companion DVD of “Seize the Days” was released in December 2008.
