GirlGeek of the Week
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
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.
