Christina brings an interest in product design and a passion for innovation to every project she works on. Early on, her passion was drawn in the sand...or raked in the leaves, rather. She was fascinated with her engineer father’s drawings, and made floorplans from autumn foliage as a kid. She interned and was hired at Eastlake Studio before graduating college. She is a registered Interior Designer in the state of Illinois and has a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from Virginia Tech.
During her eight years at Eastlake she’s designed offices for ActiveCampaign, Levy Family Partners, Chicago Council on Global Affairs, McCormick Foundation, JMB, Apollo Group, Avant, Cision and Vibes Media, to name a few. Two years in a row, her work was given an IIDA RED People’s Choice award, and in 2013, her design of Pandora’s Chicago sales office was on the cover of Chicago Architect magazine. Christina volunteers for City of Hope, a nonprofit whose mission is to make a difference in the lives of people with cancer and other serious illnesses through lifesaving research and has designed installations for DIFFA’s (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) annual Dining by Design event. She has also taken part in IIDA’s Stitch Fashion Design Competition, where top interior designers and industry manufacturing companies team up to display innovative garments. She is inspired by contemporary art and music and loves discovering new restaurants.
