About Me

Hi there. ChristinaKelso_1

My name is Christina and I’m a multimedia journalist and documentary filmmaker based in Washington Heights, Manhattan.

I’m currently studying at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and will receive an M.S. in Journalism with a specialization in documentary film in August 2019.

A native of Middleburg, Florida (a small town southwest of Jacksonville you’ve never heard of), I got my start in journalism working as a photojournalist and writer throughout Northeast Florida.  

Most recently, I spent two years as staff photojournalist for The St. Augustine Record daily paper in St. Johns County. Prior to this role, I shot and wrote for The Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville.

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.
