About Dr. Christopher Reynolds


Dr. Reynolds has previously held positions with the U.S. Congress and Senate, working in the senior position of Senior Professional Stall for the Senate Committee on the Judiciary and the House Committee on Children, Youth and Families.

He wrote Mitch McConnell’s first legislation, 

and worked on several projects with White House staff. Christopher received a Commendation from President Reagan for his “excellent work”.

In writing legislation to increase a family’s annual tax deduction from $2,000 to $2,000 for each member of a family, the White House contacted Christopher and told him not to worry about the legislation as the idea was so good that President Reagan agreed to just do it and announced the initiative in his Labor Day speech.


Christopher’s work in the Congress and the Senate came to the attention of the White House. Christopher was made a regular guest at monthly White House briefings and Douglas Holladay, the Associate director of Public Relations considered employing Christopher in the White House. Abigail Healey, of the White House, wrote to Christopher saying “If we had more professional staff working for the congress with your ability and commitment, I believe solutions to problems like substance abuse would be more easily attained.” He was then invited to attend the Republican National Convention in Dallas, Texas in 1984.

In taking up the position of Senior Professional Staff for the Senate

 Committee on the Judiciary, responsible directly to Senator Mitch McConnell, Christopher was to meet Senators Teddy Kennedy, Joe Biden, John Heinz, Gary

 Heart, Paul Trible, John Warner, John Glen and Richard Lugar – who later met with Christopher again in Sydney. Christopher also became friends with several congressmen: Tony Hall, Bill Nelson (now head of NASA), Frank Wolf and Dan Coates (later a US Senator and then worked as Director of National Intelligence under Donald Trump).

Christopher has truly rubbed shoulders with Washington royalty.

Returning to Australia, Dr. Reynolds took up the position of Executive Officer for the New South Wales Minister of Roads, Ports, Public Works and Darling Habour. Moving to the private sector, he wrote the Grim Reaper AIDS Campaign and then, working for Network Communications, had contracts with five of the divisions of BHP. He then became the Executive Director for the World Trade Centre, Sydney.

Christopher has been the owner and principal of a school, a university professor, and chaired meetings for APEC in 2000. He has worked on three US political campaigns – for a congressional district, the US Senate and a Presidential race. In Australia, he has worked on several state and federal campaigns.

For his dissertation, he rewrote the Executive Government Section of the Australian Constitution, working under the guidance of Leonard Levy, the famous American constitutional law professor.

Christopher was a guest in Peter’s home the night that he retired.
