Christine is currently living in Los Angeles, making the move from her native Twin Cities to pursue a film and writing career.
She pursued this passion, and her B.F.A., at the University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater B.F.A. Actor Training Program. There she studied with a great number of artists and teachers including Ken Washington, Mark Rylance, John Barton, Andrew Wade, Selina Cadell, Tom Cornford, Kenneth Noel Mitchell, Steve Cardamone, Lucinda Holshue, Elisa Carlson, Edda Sharpe, Glynn MacDonald, and Marcela Lorca, among others. Her time with the U of M/Guthrie BFA also included a residency with the London International School of Performing Arts and The Globe Theater.
Since then she has been performing professionally with the Guthrie Theater and other companies around the country, including Jon Housman’s The Acting Company, Idaho Shakespeare Festival, Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, and Great Lakes Theater to name a few . She has also been featured in many commercials, industrials, and short films.
Christine made her directorial and design debut with Groovelily’s Striking 12 at Bloomington Civic Theater in December 2012, which was so well-received that she was asked to remount the production the following two years. She has also served as assistant director on several productions, including Freud’s Last Session at the Guthrie Theater (director Rob Melrose), as well as working alongside Henry Wishcamper on the American premiere of Conor McPherson’s The Birds (also at the Guthrie Theater), and the regional premiere of Naomi Iizuka’s 36 Views with Walking Shadow Theater Company (John Heimbuch, director).
Christine is settling in to Los Angeles and loving the sunshine! When in doubt, you can find her and her husband at the LA Farmer's Market, hiking with her red heeler Addie, or tucked into the corner of a bookstore reading a good novel.
