Christian’s two lifelong passions are storytelling and technology. While they might not seem like they have much in common, he believes they complement one another perfectly.

A good modern product should be part of a larger narrative. You don’t just buy a new phone; you incorporate a device into your life that helps you stay connected to the people and issues you most care about. You don’t just download video editing software; you learn a new workflow in order to amplify your voice. You don’t buy an EV to save money on gas; you make an investment in a better future.

Just as stories unlock the potential of products, technology unlocks the types of stories Christian likes to tell. He doesn’t write near-future thrillers and science fiction to indulge in futurism; he explores science and technology that don’t yet exist in order to put characters in situations in which they can discover things about themselves that would otherwise have been impossible.
