My Portfolio


Hey there, my name is Christopher Rudder, a stopover and layover expert who writes high-quality, search engine optimized travel articles from itineraries and destination-specific to product reviews for online publications and blogs including my own.

But why stop there? I am a talented storyteller that transcends one media format.

With everyone turning to video platforms like YouTube, I am a skilled videographer and editor that can bring destinations, services, food and products to life. Since a picture says a thousand words, as a talented photographer I can assure your brand will have a captivating story.

About Me

Videographer / Editor | Photographer |Writer | Storyteller

I’m a Toronto based travel writer, videography and photography storyteller who loves talking about creative trip planning and creating fun, unforgettable itineraries. I’m passionate about beer (preferably a stout or lager) and I get excited every time I look at a map to start plotting my next adventure.

From the time I was a child, I’ve always been a people person, it’s always been easy for me to engage in conversation with an individual or an audience.

I am the Founder & Content Creator of the travel blog, Rudderless Travel and the local Toronto travel blog Rudderless In Toronto. I’m am also the Host & Content Creator of the web series: Rudderless, In My Backyard and Wait, What?!

Why I Do This?

I can talk travel all day, every day.

I have so many stories and experiences that whether professionally or personally, purposely or unintentionally, I’ve become the person people seek out when the travel bug bites. Planning trips can be overwhelming and I love taking that stress away by focusing on actionable itineraries which highlight captivating travel destinations, on and off the beaten path with lots of adventure, stories, culture, food and of course beer.

At the end of the day, I’m a passionate storyteller that can transcend many media platforms, whether it’s finding your product’s voice through photography, shooting and editing a video to capture the energy of your event, narrating or producing high-quality, well-researched travel articles.
