Christina Wasson’s work is motivated by a passion for three “C”s: communication, collaboration, and community-building. She investigates how technology can bring together people who are geographically separated, applying her findings to the design of technologies and organizational change processes. Christina formerly worked for the design firm E-Lab, and her consulting continues. Clients have included Motorola, Microsoft, Texas Instruments, and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
