About Me

Hello there. 

My name’s Christina and I’m a visual journalist and writer based in New York City. I work as an associate video producer for The New York Times, where I cut breaking news videos, manage livestreams and assist with enterprise pieces.

I earned a master’s in journalism and documentary filmmaking from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in 2019, and a bachelor’s in communication from Jacksonville University in 2015.

Originally from Northeast Florida, I got my start in journalism covering the Jacksonville area as a photojournalist and writer. I spent two years as a staff photojournalist for The St. Augustine Record and two years as a regular freelancer for The Florida Times-Union. In local news, I did everything from wade storm surge in the aftermath of hurricanes to watch a zookeeper put a birthday hat on a crocodile.
