Who We are
Christopher Gillis' obsession with beautiful things started in his teen years. An avid reader of Vogue and Bazaar, it was those very pages and all their beauty that helped him through his teen years. Some teens become sullen, Christopher became a fashionista! Although his first love, Christopher did not go to fashion school rather, school for another creative medium –dance. Not one to go unchallenged, Christopher would eventually try his hand at academia and complete a degree in political science and a master’s degree in public administration. In addition to his background in theatre, Christopher has been a policy analyst for the federal government, consulted for provincial governments, worked in the not-for-profit sector and most recently as a sessional professor with the University of Prince Edward Island in political science. Christopher’s varied background and personal determination allows him to manage the most challenging of situations all the while remembering the “big picture” and the importance of people. Christopher is a proud Islander – born and bred!
