Christian currently serves as the Associate Brand Manager for HealthSource RI, where he works to ensure that all Rhode Islanders are aware of and have access to high-quality, low or no cost health coverage through digital marketing tactics. Prior to this, Christian has served in marketing and communications roles for non-profit organizations, start-up companies, and larger corporations.
Through his work experience, Christian has gained strong skills in crafting compelling and engaging content for distribution across digital channels as a means to increase awareness and drive customers to take desired actions. Christian has also gained experience in event planning, using digital analytics to drive marketing decisions, and building and managing communities through social media marketing and intends to bring this wealth of experiential knowledge and skills to his role on the board.
By joining the board, Christian hopes to advance Urban Greens’ mission of offering access to healthy and affordable locally-sourced food to communities in the surrounding area who may not have had access to that in the past. He wants to be a board member to reflect, serve, and support Urban Greens’ customers and owners who identify as part of a marginalized community.
Christian emigrated to the U.S. in the early 2000s and has called Rhode Island home since. He has been living in the West End for the past 5 years. Christian enjoys cooking, watching British panel shows, and has recently started studying Korean.
