Christie st. martin

Christie loves to help others find their passion and make it catch fire with others. She got into social media before it ever had a name, building a wildly popular and fun website. 16 years later, she's still at it. She has since wrote and managed VH1's Best Week Ever website.

The Los Angeles Times gave her own blog and she contributed to the Los Angles Times' Hero Complex (a Sci-Fi/Comics blog), where she always provided her usual melange of cheek, snark and occasional observation. She would later go on to work for Syncapse where she managed clients like J.P. Morgan Chase and Loreal's social platforms to help grow, curate and build their online presence.

After over a year of forming Xprize spin-off HeroX's social media from the ground up for their prize platform for breakthroughs, she has found her true love. Helping small businesses, tech-start ups (at cool tech-incubators like San Antonio's Geekdom), and major brands find their audience, grow their audience and manage their communities online.

She is her own organizing principle, a kind of mad surfer on the crests of cultural lunacy, Alternately acerbic with an unhealthy obsession with LEGO and if given a day off she would spend it making dinosaur noises with her daughter chasing the family cats. Because that's how we roll around our house.

Crystal Adair-benning

Breathing life and character into your brand is all about the language you choose to wrap yourself in. Crystal's passion and prerogative is to tell your story in a bold way that resonates, reflects and reassures your clients that you, yes you, are the only one that they will ever need. Handcrafted storytelling for modern business. She started off writing fairytales that turned into reality.

Crystal has been a writer since she was severely un-cool in wanting a typewriter instead of a Nintendo as a child. Since her dad caved with the typewriter, she's been through endless ribbons and stories, weaving tales and tributes to incredible people, places and companies who deserve to step out of the shadows.

Her company, Quirk Copywriting, will carry authenticity through your story and find the words you dream but can't put onto paper (without breaking a sweat). Go on, she makes writing look easy... especially when, for us mere mortals... it isn't.
