Christina comes to Visual Terrain from an internship with Disney Parks Live Entertainment, where she helped the magic come to life for live entertainment in the parks. Christina’s unique background in both design and performance has allowed her to create unique experiences for the live entertainment and theatrical industries. Previously working as a freelance designer, assistant, and programmer for the last six years, Christina has experience lighting theatre, dance, opera, live entertainment, art installations, and architecture.
Her favorite projects include the design of Timken Museum of Art’s Jewels of the Season, Miracle on 34th Street (SDMT), the San Diego regional premiere of Billy Elliot (SDMT), 9 to 5 (SDMT), and the world premiere of The Loneliest Girl in the World (Diversionary Theatre). Her work has taken her from California to New Jersey, as well as overseas to Italy.
Christina considers herself a “tinkerer” and has worked to create many fun projects including a “low-budget” take on a Daft Punk Helmet. She likes both the design and technical sides of design and likes to ride the line of designer and programmer.
Christina received her MFA in Lighting Design & Technology from San Diego State University, where she also studied sound design and media design. She received a double major in BFA Lighting Design & Technology and BFA Musical Theatre from Rockford University.
