Christian Lallo

As the vice president of strategic communications, Christian's primary responsibility is to ensure MICA's story is being told boldly and evocatively to a global audience—connecting the Mission and Vision of the College to the broader narrative of a world entering a new age of creativity, transformation, and exponential growth.

A Philadelphia native, Christian graduated from Villanova University with a degree in classical literature and a minor in computer science. 

This left brain / right brain duality helped him become the creative and technical director of the Strategic Communications office of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope Science Institute where he served for 12 years—working with world-renowned scientists and Nobel Laureates to help communicate the science of the telescope to the world through  traditional, digital, and experiential media.

After NASA, Christian co-founded an award-winning Baltimore-based creative agency. Serving as the chief creative officer and director of strategy, Christian oversaw the growth of the company from 2 people to 14 full-time employees with local, national, and international clients.

When not writing, designing, coding, or video-editing, Christian will most probably be found cooking in the kitchen with his two children, or at a racetrack where he occasionally serves as a driving instructor for Ferrari, Aston Martin, and other car clubs.
