Christian started his professional career as a graphic designer at Verve records after graduating School of Visual Arts in New York in 1998. After one year, he gave up his position to build, develop and manage the Feather Factory, a work and event space which became a staple of the emerging artist community in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Over the next decade, he continued to freelance for labels such as EPIC, COLUMBIA, WARNER, ATLANTIC and SONY Music, designing artwork for Depeche Mode, Rage Against the Machine, Tony Bennett, Michael Jackson and many more. His award winning work has been published across the globe and earned international acclaim including the introduction to the renowned permanent collection of ZHdK (Museum fuer Gestaltung) and multiple Grammy nominations.

During this tenure at the Feather Factory, Christian also started to exhibit his artwork and curate various events including a show at parisian design temple Colette in December 2007 with his we-are-familia project.

In order to focus entirely on his own art, Christian relocated from Brooklyn to Manhattans Lower East Side in June 2011. This change, along with the desire to work less digitally but more analog awakened his passion for collage and assemblage.

Within the past three years he has compiled a robust body of work with his collages, including collaborations on various pieces with Oliver Vernon, a fellow artist and former Feather Factory affiliate.
