Christy lives in San Francisco. She lived and worked in Central America during the last years of the Cold War, and found her way to socio-ecological ideas through journeys in the Southern Hemisphere and time spent at the Huehuecoyotl community in Mexico. In the early 2000s, she produced a print journal called What If? Journal of Radical Possibilities. Her essays and tales have appeared in several print publications and online, primarily at Dissident Voice and CounterPunch.
