Christine Triantafillou

Christine Triantafillou

At the tender age of nine, Christine Triantafillou became seriously interested in visual arts and entertainment. From elementary school, through to college she produced and performed in musicals and video projects. This translated to a love of technology when she majored in radio/film/tv at the University of North Carolina.

It gave Christine a great sense of power to know that she was a woman and could also assemble and operate all of the equipment whether it was a camera, CG, switcher or linear editing system. After graduating, Christine took a job with Avid Technology, providing support for their non-linear video editing software.

Though the job was more technical than she had anticipated, Christine overcame the learning curve and became an Avid expert. The job provides a perfect mix of visual art and technology for this filmbuff/GirlGeek.
