Hello, let’s talk about things.

I’m a medical services professional specializing in blood management, social media/marketing consultant for the game industry, and sometime actor. I’m always interested in new ideas and opportunities, so let’s get in touch!

Blood Management

Professionally, I am a Certified Perioperative Blood Management Technician. Much like other specialists who monitor the heart, kidneys, lung function, etc., I take care of a patient’s blood with similar clinical management. Effectively, I work to help surgeons minimize the amount of blood lost intra-operatively, by salvaging the red cells lost in shed blood and re-introducing them to the patient. This reduces or eliminates the need for transfusion of banked blood, improving clinical outcomes and lowering risk factors as well.

Working in concert with anesthesia professionals and attending MDs, I work to implement Patient Blood Management ideals to ensure the best possible care for our patients.

Utilizing autologous blood recovery, eliminating the use of preoperative autologous donated blood, utilizing evidence-based transfusion triggers, vigilant anemia management and working to train and educate other health care workers on blood management and transfusion practice goes a long way toward the goal of a bloodless surgery, but they are necessary practices if we are to improve the quality of patient care going into the future.

Social Media & Marketing

I write stuff on the Internet.

Since the mid-1990s, I’ve been working in community management from the early days of America Online to the modern utilization of social media via Twitter, Facebook for Business and even livestreaming via Twitch.tv and YouTube.

I reformed the social media presence for Traverse City, Michigan’s Old Town Playhouse, serving as their Social Media Manager and increasing audience interaction by a significant percentage. In 2016, I helped Stardock develop standard practices and procedures for their Twitch.tv channel as part of their stream team, cultivating a regular audience and goodwill for their products as well as the company itself.

Cris is always on top of new web services and technologies. He is skilled at leveraging tools, such as social media and iPhone applications, to deliver high-value solutions to his customers.

Acting

I’m a performance artist with several years of experience on-stage and in voice over. I’ve had the good fortunate to play lead roles in classics like Oscar Wilde’s “An Ideal Husband” or homespun originals like Tim Clue’s “Leaving Iowa,” as well as supporting character roles in shows like Tim Clue’s “Leaving Iowa” or Ken Ludwig’s “The Game’s Afoot!”

Most recently: ‘Mike’ in “Wait Until Dark,” at the Old Town Playhouse in Traverse City, Michigan.

Performing

The bulk of my performing experience is based in theater; chiefly in live theater but also a little commercial and voice acting.

Medical and marketing technology professional, sometime actor, most time sandwich enthusiast

Cristopher Boyer has traveled the world and chosen to live in the great State of Michigan. A graduate of Michigan State University, he continues to work in both the medical and marketing fields – separately – while pursuing something of an acting career on the side.

Facebook thinks his year consists primarily of sandwich pictures, and presents him with memories made of reubens and grilled chicken.
