About CHRIS SILK

Biography

Chris Silk joined the Daily News in January 1999. He graduated summa cum laude from the honors program at the University of Louisiana at Monroe with a degree in Journalism and minors in Spanish and History.

Chris interned at the Daily News through the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund Online Editing program in the summer of 1998 before returning to Naples full-time to work on the Web desk. He remembers when there were only two lanes headed over the Gordon River on U.S. 41 and you could see cows along Interstate 75 in Bonita Springs.

Chris began reviewing local theater performances for the Daily News during the fall of 2007. His first review was of Queen Latifah's slamming performance at the Philharmonic, while his favorite so far has been "Eagle Fruit," British playwright Terry Johnson's scream-and-leap blast of performance art for the spiritually deprived from the Laboratory Theater of Florida in December 2009.
