Christy’s admiration for artists and architects began at an early age. Maybe it was her multi-faceted tradesman father who could design and build just about anything or her uber-crafty mother and sister who could have been the first “Martha Stewart” if they’d ever taken any money for their creations. Her house resembled what you might today call “a maker space”. Surrounded by fabric, sewing machines, cookbooks, wood-working tools, and even a full-fledged metal shop, the freedom to play and explore as a child has inspired a love for the process of creation.
Her professional career provides Christy with a unique opportunity to live among architects and designers, despite her background in marketing and sales. “I’ve been fortunate to have an intimate view of how architecture can instill feelings of pride, compassion, belonging, and hope. I try to bring a bit of that into the world I live in by interacting with others and my environment in a thoughtful way. Each day I wake up looking to be inspired by, and to inspire, my surroundings in a positive way. I’m rarely disappointed when I’m open to what the world has to offer.” It turns out that in life, just as in improvisational comedy, the key to making good things happen usually starts with saying ‘yes’.
