I’m a communications designer, curious creative, and humanistic thinker originally from Alabama.
I am the creator of the CFBS Podcast, which explores the intersectionality of the experience of millennial women of the African Diaspora millennial. Topics include the discovery of a woman’s own sexuality and sexual expression through pop culture and society (i.e. religion, culture, etc.).
I’ve studied in Alabama (University of Alabama, December 2016), California, and New York (Pratt Institute, May 2020), and have traveled to Japan and throughout the United States.
I have enjoyed partnerships involving brand identity and designing for social impact and media. Some of the most interesting projects to me have promoted diversity, education, and human-centered concepts (e.g., sexuality, sociology, interactions, women, minorities, and cultures around the world).
My name is Christina Burroughs aka Mickey, and I'm an aspiring creative director for commercial ads. Currently, I'm a first-year MFA at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. I graduated with a BA in Studio Art with a concentration in Digital Media from the University of Alabama in December 2016. I was in the CIS in LA internship program where I interned for Red 14 Films, now renamed Film 14. My work ranges from illustration to VR and production design to special effects prosthetics.
I love foreign, family, historical, and supernatural/ superhero-type television shows. This includes shows like Korean drama Coffee Prince, CW's The Flash, Showtime's Shameless, PBS/ITV's Downton Abbey. I also have a random knowledge of action and superhero movies due to two parents who love action-packed movies. Overall, I love the idea of exploring different cultures and concepts through media and food. I speak a little Spanish and Korean, some French, but mostly English.
