Background

About Christie

Christie was born in Bermuda, and educated at two Canadian universities which would prefer not to be mentioned here until she supplies them with healthy building endowments. An uber-geek and proud of it, she established herself as an internet presence with All Things Christie, a blog that managed, with its quirky and unabashedly self-indulgent links to and commentary on whatever struck her fancy or her ire or documented her competitive gaming career, to attract legions of readers, fans and would-be stalkers. Her interests were as they are: myriad and eclectic, though certainly given to a particular fondness for the tech-y, the game-y and the kitszchy. She has since wrote and managed VH1's Best Week Ever website. The Los Angeles Times gave her own blog and she contributed to the LATimes' Hero Complex ( a Sci-Fi/Comics blog), where she always provided her usual melange of cheek, snark and occasional observation.

She would later go on to work for Syncapse where she managed clients like J.P. Morgan Chase and Loreal's social platforms to help grow, curate and build their online presence. Most recently she was the former team lead of community development and digital strategy for HeroX.

But she is starting a company called LoveNomads and is looking for her work marriage with a code monkey. She knows Python but not the force is not strong with her anymore.

She is her own organizing principle, a kind of mad surfer on the crests of cultural lunacy, alternately acerbic and most definitely has an almost unhealthy obsession with LEGO and Star Trek.
