Meet Christian Knightly
A nerdy digital marketing strategist with a love for cooking, working out and travel.
As a native Floridian, I grew up in Clearwater and moved to Orlando in 2001 to start at UCF. I graduated in 2005 with a BA in Liberal Studies and a triple minor in Business, Film, and German Language. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to many places around the world including Kenya, Egypt, Ukraine, Germany, Costa Rica, and many other countries. I’ve been chased by cops on camels, ridden horseback through a cloud forest, and hiked up to Hawaii’s Mauna Kea summit (14,000 ft).
As a business owner of Treefrog Cinegraphix, a digital marketing company, I manage a team who work with various companies across the nation. Working in the marketing and advertising industry, I find myself constantly keeping up with the latest advances in digital advertising and website development while running the day-to-day tasks for the business. By consistently researching and learning about new web technologies, I have the ability to assess a client’s needs and determine the best solution to optimize their ROI.
Outside of work, you’ll find me at the gym training for the next Savage Race or Tough Mudder or I may be out hiking, canoeing, or headed to the beach. I also enjoy discovering cozy hole-in-the-wall bars in Orlando or catching a SAK Comedy Lab show. Having recently become a new home owner, I also spend time fixing up my 1959 mid-century modern home and enjoy walking my rescue dog, Ulrick, around the neighborhood.
Want to talk nerdy? I belong to House Ravenclaw, team Jon Snow, and team Instinct. I’m fascinated by space, time travel, and natural anomalies and curiosities. When sinking into the couch, the TV is tuned to Rick and Morty, The Walking Dead, or Stranger Things. In the kitchen, I love whipping up recipes from America’s Test Kitchen or trying a new crockpot recipe from Pinterest. Learning about different wines is a pet project of mine and I hope to someday have the sophisticated palette of a master sommelier.
