We talked with Christian after the Snyder Diamond School Night program: Social Media for the Design Trade, where he spoke on the importance of social media in building a brand as a design professional. Christian walked the audience through some of the basics of his current favorite social platform, Instagram, and how it has continued the evolution of his career as an interior designer.

He credits his presence on various social platforms for a number of recent opportunities including designing a room for the California Home + Design Small Space Big Style Showhouse,

window displays for LCDQ Legends in 2013 and 2014,
