Hailing from Chesapeake, Virginia, Christen has been working as a professional actress and lifestyle print model for the past several years across film, television, commercial and print. She graduated from George Mason University with a BA in Communication. After working in the corporate world for two years, she took a leap of faith and followed a creative path as an artist working mostly in front of the camera. Her life motto is, “Never get too comfortable as life throws many curveballs”.
For Christen, this art form is a beautiful canvas that gives her the freedom to paint as she sees fit and marvel in the sweet moments of truth and authenticity. She loves co-creating with other artists and encouraging them to be their best self on any given day. She has a personal knack for analyzing network and cable formulaic mediums.
She is quite the avid Netflix fan who loves streaming her favorite series for the tenth time, brewing one too many espresso K-cups and fighting for the tiny unheard voices.
Christen made her acting debut in Victoria Rowell’s Amazon Prime series Jacqueline And Jilly. Her other on-camera credits include the MGM biopic, Respect, a Gravitas Ventures film, Good, a new series and several indie shorts. She is very grateful to have gained fodder from industry vets including, Liesl Tommy, Susan Batson, Carl Ford, Sara Mornell, Richard Brooks, Victoria Rowell, Rona Dana and John Rosenfeld, to name a few.
