I am highly passionate about creating stories and the process of project inception to completion. Involving myself with creative individuals while maintaining the long term goals of the project are things I find challenging, exciting, and rewarding. I am interested in all types of art and media work as an avid art lover, keen eye for great art. I am self taught outside of a short run at university before signing to a record label and touring for much of my twenties. Always learning, every day from any source available. I have a passion for art and music as well as video and film. Lately I find myself doing a lot of tangible work with mixed media and such enjoying the tactile experience. I've recently relocated from Hollywood, CA back to the midwest after about four years of LA. I had had enough of the city and missed family, friends, etc. I've already enrolled in a local college to knock out a few inexpensive years of schooling at state level before transferring. While I did reside in Hollywood, CA, I surrounded myself with talented people so that I could learn and absorb all that I could. My time was/is spent writing scripts for graphic novels, connecting talented individuals to work on the scripts I create through a pipeline from invention to completion while filling budget gaps by personally lettering or editing. My skills include Photoshop, Illustrator, Traditional pencil and media, digital design, art direction, illustration, script writing, and a limited knowledge of networking. I do not know code, or web design, or flash etc, at this time. I can quickly adapt to these mediums at an entry level given the proper guidance and support within a project by someone more experienced than I.

My name is Christine Harris and there are so many interesting facts that I would like to share with you today about myself. I am an everyday crab, shrimp, and all over seafood eating, Maryland native. I was born in 1980 in Annapolis, not knowing that someday, I would be an individual of ambition and intuition ready to succeed. After I graduated high school from Meade Senior High School in 1998, my outstanding future led me to Bowie State where I leaned toward a somewhat hesitant career in criminal justice. After finishing two years at that highly acclaimed historically black college, I then transferred to Towson University, where I was seemingly in a world of my own. I went from being at a historically black college to being the only black individual in my class. This was a very enlightening situation for me and I was all too excited to learn and loved the idea of being set apart from others. I finally graduated in January of 2003, earning a Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice. Needless to say through all of the blood sweat and tears that I endured, I was unable to ever start a career in criminal justice! After several years of dead end jobs, I finally landed at The University of Phoenix where I thrived at being an Enrollment Counselor. During my career there, I gave birth to two beautiful little boys and finished a long awaited Masters Degree in Business Administration (MBA); that was the best perk of working for the university. Finally after two long years the university and I parted ways. I am now waiting to see what’s next around the corner in this great opportunity called life!
