When I'm old, I don't want them to say of me, "She's so charming." I want them to say, "Be careful, I think she's armed." - G. Stoddart
"We do not really know what draws a human being out into the world. Is it curiosity? A hunger for experience? An addiction to wonderment? The man who ceases to be astonished is hollow, possessed of an extinguished heart. If he believes that everything has already happened, that he has seen it all, then something most precious has died within him – the delight in life." - Ryszard Kapuscinski
I am neither as old as I seem, or as young as I look.
I am a tech geek by trade.
I am the impatient Buddha.
I am the dragon and the otter, balanced.
I am a catalyst.
I am a storyteller.
I would love to let you in...
"I've got walls, I've got wings
I am ready for the fire
I've got trust in nothing
see I lost it by and by
but I've got something shining somewhere
honey I dream on the sly..."
- Chris Pureka, Come Back Home

"Wow, I really can't believe no one has written a testimonial for Christine. I'm kind of hesitant myself, I feel as if I should write it as poetic as possible.
Christine's photography can be... dark, sinister, foreboding...
and then bright and happy also.
Her emotions shine right through her photography in the most beautiful and stunning ways possible.
Browns, blacks, purples, reds... these are the colors you can expect to see regularly from Christine.
And just when you finally think you've figured her out, she'll blast you away with something completely new and amazing.
So... watch, and be enthralled."

"Christine has a complicated yet subtle aesthetic that straddles content one is comfortable with and foiled by little somethings that never leaves the mind quite settled. It is like the nature of water constantly changing temperatures."
