About Me

Hi there. 

My name is Christina and I’m a multimedia journalist and documentary filmmaker based in Washington Heights, Manhattan. I also work as an assistant video editor and breaking news producer for The New York Times.

In August 2019, I received a master’s in journalism with a specialization in documentary film from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. 

A native of Middleburg, Florida (a small town southwest of Jacksonville you’ve never heard of), I got my start reporting as a photojournalist and writer throughout Northeast Florida. While there, I spent two years as a staff photojournalist for The St. Augustine Record and two years as a freelancer for The Florida Times-Union.

Working in daily news, I’ve done everything from wade storm surge in the aftermath of hurricanes to watch a zookeeper put a birthday hat on a crocodile.
