Speaker Bio

Christina Varro

Speaker/Educator

For almost 20 years, I have worked in digital media and communications. I have also spent almost a decade running my own business, managing projects for clients, giving creative direction to teams, crafting digital media and capturing beautiful images.

I want to give back to the community that has supported me along my career, through sharing knowledge and educating others. Design, technology and visual communications are fields I am passionate about and I enjoy sharing my experience and perspective.

My goal is for my talks to be inspiring, but also practical. I want audience members to walk away with immediately actionable items, that will help them build better websites, take better photos or run their businesses more efficiently.

Topics I speak about include:

  • WordPress – management, plugins and security
  • Web design – best practices and responsive design
  • Freelance business
  • Location independence / digital nomading
  • Photography – skills and image editing
  • Digital strategy
