Art, media, and language have enchanted Christine since her childhood in Arlington, Virginia. Christine dove into creative activities at an early age, hoping that her writing and artistic abilities would prevent teachers from learning of her mathematical inability. Luckily, her plan worked. Her non-math skills founded Quail Bell Magazine and have been recognized by the Smithsonian Latino Center, The Washington Post, USA Today, the International Cinematographers Guild, the Virginia Cable Telecommunications Association, and other respected organizations. In October 2011, Style Weekly named Christine one of the"Top 40 Under 40" in Richmond, Virginia. She now lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband.
