FOUNDER, CREATOR, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER, HOST
An international executive and entrepreneur who has lived on many continents, Ken Christie’s vision led to Creators and Collectors TV. Promptly by an interest in art collecting and a quest for adventure, Christie sets out to examine American lives lived with passion and purpose, spanning far-flung fields — from the aforementioned visual art, into fashion, retail, liquor and spirits (blended with rock ‘n roll), aviation, and Americana. And that’s just a taste of season one. Christie’s put together a coast-to-coast team for Creators and Collectors TV, which interweaves the subject’s own narratives alongside interviews with those that know them best — providing rich, captivating details including some great insider stories. Christie’s curiosity, empathy, charismatic screen presence, and natural ability to put his subjects at ease while drawing out telling anecdotes about their journeys, provides a focal point for the series.
Channeling a contemporary James Bond with the tell-all confidential attitude of legendary interviewers such as Barbara Walters, Christie is a memorable on-air personality who anchors each episode, whether it’s the glamorous world of a high-fashion shoe designer on her way up, or the compelling town people of Round Top, Texas. Christie’s tag line — “Travel with Me. Create Your World!” — resonates with viewers due to his authentic, inspiring voice.
