About Christine

Christine Caccipuoti (pronounced Kass-uh-pew-tee) was born, raised, and still lives on Long Island, New York. She is, as her header indicates, a historian - writer - actor. What this combination means is that she loves telling stories and exploring personalities in any medium she can find. 

 

Christine obtained her BA and MA in history from Fordham University and wrote her Master's thesis on the admittedly very obscure topic of bigamous priests in Medieval England. She did this while maintaining her musical theatre and operatic voice training-- something that has kept her happy since she was twelve.

Upon completing graduate school, Christine continued her performance education privately, at HB Studio, and in CAP21's Summer Professional Musical Theatre Training Program. She also began acting and singing her way around Long Island and New York City and became a member of both SAG-AFTRA and AEA.

Sometimes Christine's passions converge in the most pleasing of ways. In 2013 she was a founding member of the podcast Footnoting History. She currently serves as the podcast's Assistant Producer, handler of all things twitter, and resident Bonaparte (as in, Napoleon) enthusiast.

Her first short story, "London, 1803", was published in The First Line in 2015. It, and every other piece selected, began with the sentence, "Fairy tales hardly ever come true for quiet girls." Since then, she has written in a variety of genres for places like  365 Women a Year, The Honest Actors' Blog, Strategy Girl, and Oxford's American National Biography.
