Hey, I'm Christine!

Minneapolis, Minnesota

 

 

Ooookaaaay. Here we go... Civilian stuff first...

 

 I started out as a Geology major with a love of theater and a steady career as a Denny's waitress when I landed a part time job as a weekend weather reporter in Missoula, MT. Four months later I was recruited by the NBC affiliate in nearby Spokane, WA. Three years to the day from my first weather job I was flying across the USA to work for NBC in Boston.


Since then I have hosted, anchored, forecast and headlined newscasts for top rated stations across the country including KABC in Los Angeles, WCCO and KMSP in Minneapolis, and WHDH in Boston. My live severe weather coverage and severe weather programming has garnered several station Emmy Awards.  I have also been nominated for an Emmy (weathercaster), named "Boston's Best Meteorologist" by Improper Bostonian magazine.

 

 

My Favorite Season is WINTER!

My Second Favorite Season is OTHER SEVERE WEATHER!!

 

 

AFter moving to Minnesota in 2002, I launched "The Snow Snow" which led to a Hirsch Broadcasting award for Sports programming in it's first year and ran for 3 seasons.

 

Since then I have also appeared in movies and television series including The Mindy Project, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, 90210, The Closer, Hallmark, Lifetime, and 4 seasons of Desperate Housewives.

 

 

Off camera, I work as media consultant and producer. My company, Clayburg Creative, assists global corporations, high profile individuals and non-profits alike in techniques to make their stories more approachable, relatable and media friendly.

 


After many years covering natural disasters I enlisted with the Air National Guard as a loadmaster on the C-130 Hercules. I am a 5th generation military veteran, the oldest of 5 girls and and lived in Zambia when I was young where my parents helped build a hospital and a small dam to generate power for the hospital.  We got to Africa by crossing the Atlantic on a cargo ship when I was about 5 and I've had a well developed fondness for adventure and service to others  ever since.

 

 

As a combat airlift loadmaster I supervise all aspects of loading, weight and balance, preflight and airdrop operations. I am also an expert marksman and have deployed for Operation Enduring Freedom, completing many successful combat airlift missions in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as other combat, peace-keeping and humanitarian airlift operations around the globe.

 

   

 

I am also trained as a Tactical Airlift Control Loadmaster which includes managing readiness and rapid response for national and international disasters. I am an Air Force instructor, and have taught aircraft load planning and emergency response airlift operations to the sister services, NASA, Lockheed Martin and other government contractors to ensure rapid coordinated airlift response worldwide.        


Back when I didn't think a thermarest was too painful to sleep on, I climbed numerous North and South American peaks as high as 22,842', kayaked solo for a week through the Apostle Islands on frigid Lake Superior, bicycled from San Francisco to Los Angeles along the Pacific Coast Highway, completed Olympic length triathlons and traversed the Sierra Nevada alone.   

 


In more recent years I have done more film directing, writing and producing including several award winning short films!  

 

 

I am currently in my 2nd year of an MFA in TV and Film Screenwriting with Stephens College.  I started this MFA with ONE mission....polish the Minneapolis Screenplay under the expert guidance of:  

 

Ken Lazebnik -  (A Prairie Home Companion, Star Trek: Enterprise, Army Wives, Providence)

Brian Bird -   (When Calls the Heart, Touched By An Angel).

 

And last, but certainly not least,...

(and yes, I know, this is supposed to be the part where most film-makers acknowledge the wife and kids). I am The Most Devoted and Loyal Minion of my beloved, kinda bitey, and extremely well-traveled little rescue kitty,    

 

 Commander Roger Spacely, and I most sincerely hope, that the mere spectre of his mighty kitty importance will compel you to support our film! ; )
