Christina Holbrook

Writer

I live in Breckenridge, Colorado, and I love to write about all aspects of my home in the mountains: my New Yorker's take on outdoor adventure, schmoozing with local chefs and Colorado winemakers, finding humor and grace in this path that has brought me through chaos and heartbreak to love.

Work and life have taken me to New York City, Miami and Palm Beach, and on extended stints to Italy and Hong Kong. I've taken a company public in New York, practiced shamanic healing, raised money for affordable healthcare options - and spent a lot of time writing.

What interests me most?: People. The natural world. Eating and drinking. Unbelievable coincidences. Stories. I am always ready to explore new ideas and dive into new experiences, and then write about them!

How Important Is Listening, Really?

Listening is a magnetic and strange thing. The people who really listen to us are the ones we move toward, and want to sit in their radius as though it did us good.
