Cristoforo believes it is important to nurture imagination and inspire play. To empower and accept positive changes in ourselves and our communities, we must first imagine positive changes. How might we share means to better understand what is, connect with others, and ask ourselves, what if? As a visual artist and educator, Cris believes stories are the universal language, expressable through countless media and professions.


Since studying literature at Harvard College, Cris has pursued meaningful stories through work with non-profits, startups, the White House, and in academic research with metaLAB (at) Harvard, an experimental media-making research and teaching unit.

Cris is developing his thesis film towards completion of an MFA in film production from the University of Texas at Austin.
