Biography and photograph of Erika Christie, Transmedia Content Creator and Writer, Photographer and Filmmaker erikachristie.com retrogradenova.com

Erika is a multimedia creator whose passion lies in Writing, Photography, and Filmmaking. Her early experiences in theatre instilled in her an intense understanding of how words, music, actors, visual artwork, audience interactions, and storylines work together to create memorable experiences.

Her writing, especially the Retrograde Nova blogs, is filled with scifi jargon and tv references and she is especially fond of unreliable narrators who tell their stories out of order and are prone to embellishment and obfuscation. Most of it is NSFW. Probably NS in general.

Her photos of musicians, cosplayers, and street performers are candid glimpses into the lives of talented artists polishing their craft in the hopes the world will see. Many pursue their art in direct opposition to their perilous surroundings.

Her work as a creative director sees her traveling between NYC, Washington DC, and Atlanta. Most recently, she has been interviewing and cultivating information from leading artists in fields such as virtual and augmented reality, music in the digital age, content distribution, game development, and world building across platforms. 

"Human creativity leads to social cohesion as artists define our collective reality."
