Born and raised in Southern California, Christina got her first experiences in the film industry in front of the camera. Working with incredible photographers and directors ignited a spark that lead her to dump the engineering degree she was going for and pursue a film degree at The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Her parents still haven’t forgiven her.
She prides herself on exposing the beautifully awkward and imperfect reality life offers up. Finding the small nuances that make a moment unique. “I’m interested in the moment in between the moments,” she says. “The photo you don’t post because it’s not perfect, but in reality is more representational of your life and charming than the perfect one.” As a mom, perfect kitchens and ridiculously clean homes actually make her frustrated as it is so very unachievable. She loves the mess of real life!
With almost 20 years experience she has brought life to branded content and commercials all over the world. She continues to direct and shoot a lot of her own work.
She resides in Toronto with her Canadian film director husband, 2 kids, 1 dog, and a hamster that seems to be living way past his promised expiry date.
