An Introduction

A little about me

profile

Ever since I got my feet wet with Rogers Television in high school as a script assistant and camera operator, my passion has been broadcasting and current events. Seemingly predestined for this career, I was named after a well known Canadian broadcaster, Christine Bentley.

At Ryerson I specialized in TV broadcast journalism within the Radio and Television Arts program. Internships at CBC, CityNews, and CTV while in school lead to my first job at Dragons' Den as an assistant editor.

That initial role lead to a series of progressive advancements: broadcast technician, associate producer for breaking news, reporting in Moncton NB, producer for the Sochi games, and writing and producing for CBC News Network.

I was asked to train others at CBC on Avid desktop editing, the breaking news touchscreen, and TV graphics due to my technical aptitude and strong teaching ability.
