Hello! My name is Christian Walsh, but I am best known by CJ. I am currently a junior here at Carnegie Mellon within the environments design track. In addition to my major, I'm pursuing a minor in environmental studies.
My design and artistic work focuses on storytelling at different scales and across a variety of environments. I enjoy creating immersive and interactive physical environments that can invoke wonder, educate, and promote well-being. In addition, I am motivated to create work that enhances societal well-being, especially by addressing topics such as toxic masculinity, food and water insecurity, and mental health awareness.
I am originally from West Chester, PA, and growing up in a semi-suburban, semi-rural area has influenced my work greatly. Outside of my academics I am a Resident Assistant in campus housing, a member of the Scotch'n'Soda Theater group, where I work in various tech areas, and I am also a brother of the Delta Alpha Chapter of Kappa Sigma Fraternity.
