Hey, I'm Christen!
I'm a writer, photographer, and idea machine; I'm currently based in Los Angeles, and available for freelance projects. I love decrypting concepts, organizing information, and communicating ideas out in a way that others will both understand and enjoy.
I shine most when collaborating with others–nurturing creativity through positivity, while challenging the status quo.
I work with ethical companies to foster connection between them and their true audiences.
I do this using clear communication, storytelling, and creative strategy.
Word on the Street
"Christen provided critical support to help me and my startup, Huglife, run a successful Kickstarter in early 2019, surpassing our goals. She had her hands in every aspect of our launch, including helping to script and direct our Kickstarter video. Her grounded, thoughtful, perceptive and endlessly creative style bled into all the work we did together. Talent and ability aside, she’s a joy to be around as a person and anyone would be lucky to work with her."
- Jennifer Price, Founder at Huglife Company
"Christen was an irreplaceable asset on our team. She enabled the entirety of our communications strategy and content for the 2018 election cycle. Without Christen’s steady leadership, we would not have achieved the success that we did. What makes Christen so unique is her positive energy and ability to find humor in any situation. Things get tough in politics and she made it fun, and that was evident as we flipped four Congressional seats."
- William Rinehart, Founder/Director at Blue Uprising PAC
"Christen is a very passionate and professional person to have on the team. She comes to each project with a positive attitude, and is very agile. She has taken her expertise in photography and content development, and broadened her horizons by leading organic Pinterest efforts for Walmart.com, from process to execution. Her experience, content expertise, creative background, and personality make her a great addition to any team."
- Jenny Sidarova, Director of Content Strategy at L'Oreal
"Christen is a very professional and playful photographer. Her laugh is contagious and sets her subjects at ease. She has a deep love and respect for natural beauty and wonderful communication skills. She is a joy and pleasure to be around, collaborate with and the results are always surprising and fantastic!"
