Christina Davis

Christina has a diverse professional background, ranging from working in corporate development to guiding African safaris. While not principally a designer in these roles, Christina found enrichment by focusing on aspects of design in these roles: working with engineers to start a manufacturing plant, creating presentations on the interconnected design of ecosystems, and designing behavioral experiments while studying economics. She discovered her interest in how people interact with the world around them while studying interior design. Christina looks forward to making a difference in people’s lives by gaining design skills that help people on a larger scale.

Christina is a member of the Auxiliary Board at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, where she is passionate about its focus on education and conservation. She finds travel inspirational. In fact, Christina remembers first realizing the importance of design when comparing foreign cities to her own as a 7 year old abroad.

Christina currently resides is Chicago, where she was raised. She has lived in Minnesota, Arizona, South Africa, and Italy and looks forward to exploring Austin next.
