Hi, My name is Christine
I am an expert in sourcing, casting and developing talent across a variety of mediums including commercial and branded content, theatrical and film projects.
It's my passion to follow, research and support tastemakers such as actors, fitness experts, entrepreneurs, influencers, celebrities and models over different mediums.
I am driven by my purpose to connect people.
Deeply important elements of my personal self that are undeniably present in my professional work: I am a queer immigrant living in the United States and I grew up in Northern Ireland during the troubles.

I believe in the power of creative collaboration
I work in Casting, Content and Talent development
For almost ten years, I worked in "conventional" casting; providing casting services in the entertainment industry.
Then I took a step back. What was really important to me? What was my purpose and passion?
The answers were immediate and clear. I want to:
Connect talent with opportunity;
Package and deliver the best options to my creative collaborators;
Develop content that inspires and empowers
Recently I have been developing and producing panels, webinars and materials for Backstage.
I believe that passionate, empowered, informed casting and content makes for the most compelling storytelling. Take a look at my work and let's Collaborate together.
