ABOUT THE ARTIST
Christine is an actor, writer, director, and teacher. Her first acting role was a guest star as a mean girl on one of America’s most popular shows, Sister, Sister. From there, she starred on other hit shows like Party of Five, Moesha, Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper, and even experienced the fast-paced world of soap operas on General Hospital. During the early 2000s, she started directing and dove headfirst into a production of Fiddler on the Roof in the small college town of Hamilton, NY.
After her first experience directing, she caught that bug and moved to New York City. It was in NY where she wrote and performed her first solo show, Baby Cow, in FringeNYC which led to a carved out niche in the solo world. In addition to being a performer, she became the go-to director for solo shows and has personally fostered over 60 shows as a teacher of the craft. Her newest solo show, Such Nice Shoes, has had several NYC runs at the beautiful and prestigious white box space of TheaterLab. In addition to the stage, she can be seen on BULL (CBS), in the dark comedy Search Party (HBO), and recurring as the snarky M.E. on Blue Bloods (CBS) and campaign manager Jesse Hinkler on For Life (ABC).

Her studies include: The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) in London, Teatro Olmetto in Milan and Playhouse West Los Angeles.
Her directorial works include Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, Luigi Pirandello’s Liola, Samuel Beckett’s Endgame, What The Flowers Say a play inspired by the works of Garcia Lorca and James McLure’s Laundry and Bourbon / Lone Star.
