When I’m working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I think only how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.

Christina Bowen, Generator

Christina is a knowledge ecologist. She traces the transformation of information to knowledge in human systems the way an ecologist might follow the transfer of sunlight to different forms of energy moving through a wetland. This focus helps increase the speed at which communities and organizations adapt to change, and improves the likelihood of successfully creating desired change.  A collaborative researcher with abundant curiosity, Christina uses her experience in ecology, land-use planning (human ecology) and research to illuminate the context - the knowledge ecosystem - of a given problem or endeavor. She works with the people of that ecosystem to translate big-picture systems thinking into the nuts and bolts of strategic actions using critical thinking, skillful dialog and functional design.  Once she has an understanding of a client's goals and operations, she offers insight into ongoing ways to improve and document individual, cooperative and organizational learning.  An avid learner herself, Christina studied at Reed College and Western Washington University’s Huxley College, has practiced Aikido for over 15 years, and tamed a wild horse.  In her newest cooperative learning endeavor, she is pleased to be part of the imaginative team at the Human Interface Project.   Working with innovative leaders in many fields allows her to find, learn and apply effective, out-of-the-box responses to today's challenges to profit, people and place.
