Hello!

I'm Christine Koh, a music and brain neuroscientist turned multimedia creative.

Drop me a line; I'd love to chat about how we can work together!

Weekly Blueprint

Happy Sunday, everyone, I hope you're enjoying a wonderful, wonderful weekend! Ours has been filled with lots of relaxation and fun and I'm sharing the Weekly Blueprint early because: 1) there are a lot of fun options for tomorrow's holiday that you might want to plan for, and 2) as much as I love working, I want to take tomorrow off entirely for my birthday! Have a great rest of the weekend and I'll see you back here on Tuesday!
