Hi, I’m Christine!

I’m a video storyteller, a female solo travel influencer & Youtube coach.

Seven years ago, I was a female solo traveler with a rising career living in New York city, filming and producing popular reality and online shows. I was a docu-reality producer and shooter working for a lot of corporate brands from MTV, Food Network, Yahoo, BET, VH1 and paid to travel. But the economy fell and I left the U.S. to spend a gap year living abroad (a dream of mine!) in Korea.

Long story short, when I moved back home to the U.S., I returned to my family in Hawaii. It was a monumental challenge breaking into a small patriarchal television industry on a small island with limited opportunities. Being a newcomer and female, a lot of men wouldn’t give me a chance despite my proven success working with lead cable networks. Wanting to survive my passion for video storytelling, I went onto YouTube.  And re-scripted my life!

I grew my influence in the travel blogging industry and created a solo travel YouTube brand and blog to empower new solo travelers around the world to find the confidence to travel alone. Til today, I get regular emails and messages from both, women and men about how my videos helped launch their first solo trip. Inspiring new soloists to leap towards their fears to find freedom is major. That’s the positive side of influence.

Brands like Apple, Manfrotto, Travel Channel,… approached me at 25,000 subscribers and ultimately I worked on campaigns with SanDisk, Mazda, Airbnb. These were brands I thought I had to be living in New York or Los Angeles to work with!  I’m occasionally hired for tourism board campaigns and to create fresh content, I work with sponsor(s) on almost every trip I take!

Today, I’m coaching creators/influencers to scale influence and monetize with proven strategies and powerful personal branding on YouTube. My mission is to Jumpstart YouTube businesses.

Video is my immersed passion – I’ve worked in most formats from corporate and news to lifestyle television shows, red carpet and live events. I’m also a SAG-AFTRA actress.

But YouTube and growing a travel influencer business took a lot of years of trial and error!

I’ve had coaches all my life– for athletics training, dance, meditation, acting… If you want to excel in anything, you need someone more experienced to guide you and help sculpt your potential.

You can struggle with guesswork for years, slug it out trying to figure out how your competitors are succeeding where you’re not, Google answers and watch YouTube tip videos till you’re overwhelmed and uncertain what will work …and basically, never recognize or own your true potential. 

I’m going to give you the jumpstart and guide you past all the head-scratching… to grow and monetize on YouTube strategically.

Let’s jumpstart your YouTube channel game…NOW.

It can take years to learn what I did, if you do it on your own …

…Feel stuck and like your YouTube channel is going nowhere? 

…Wonder how influencers grow supportive audiences, brand deals and press trips?

…Worried about losing opportunities and big brand deals, because you don’t know how to price yourself?  ( At 25K on YouTube, I lost both,  Apple and Manfrotto sponsorships because I didn’t know how to negotiate for my brand!  )

…Wish you had one resource and customized help to help guide your YouTube potential to branded success?

If you answered YES to any of the above, then that’s where I come in.

My goal is to get your YouTube business working towards monetization early on with the right mindset and strategies.
