I'm Christian Surtz, an Emmy-nominated filmmaker and photographer based in Chicago. I founded and direct SurtzMedia, a media production firm through which I've served over 50 clients in eight states over the past three years. 

Since 2017 I've worked with 5-time Emmy-winning production company Spirit Juice Studios, primarily as a video editor for projects that together now total over three million online views. I currently serve as Creative Lead for a long-term post production project.

I'm a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, and I've also served as a graphic designer for Northwestern University and Executive Director of TEDxNorthwesternU
