I create content and products that build a better world. I write and tell stories about people who passionately pursue their dreams, places that continually reinvent themselves, and products that make a difference in the lives of the people who use them. I’m in this game to inspire, educate, and help people live the very best versions of their lives.
A bit more info:
I’m a writer and product developer who believes creativity and determination are the most powerful duo on Earth. I’m also the playwright, director, and producer of Sing After Storms. In 2012, I founded the content development company Chasing Down the Muse. Equally inspired by ancient wisdom and modern tech, I pride myself on being an opener of doors for myself and others.
I’m currently at work writing a young adult novel titled, Where the Light Enters, and a new play, Wild and Precious Lives, set in the deep south about a family grappling with its patriarch’s illness and the frightening secret he’s been able to hide until now.
I’m also crafting a board game that teaches compassion, empathy, and collaboration, and I’m learning (slowly and steadily) to code.
And another bit:
My 16-year career has stretched across Capitol Hill, Broadway theatre, education, nonprofit fundraising, health and wellness, and Fortune 500 companies in retail, media, and financial services. In every experience, I have used my sense of and respect for elegant design to develop meaningful products, services, programs, and events that make this world a better place.
I blog daily about inspiring people, places, and ideas at Christa in New York: Curating a Creative Life.
A recovering multi-tasker, I am a proud alum of UPenn (BA) and the Darden School at UVA (MBA). When not writing, I’m out in in the world walking my rescue dog, Phin, traveling with a purpose, or practicing the high-art of people watching. I’m fortunate to feel at home in New York City and Orlando, Florida.
I look forward to the conversation.
