About Christine

and Hello Barkada Creative

Christine Pasalo Norland (she/her) is a storyteller from California. She was born in the Bay on unceded Ohlone lands, raised in Los Angeles on unceded Tongva lands, and adults in San Diego on unceded Kumeyaay lands. A daughter of immigrants, her roots extend to the Ilocos region of the so-called Philippines, by way of the Province of Pangasinan.


Christine's work prioritizes people whose identities and experiences aren't typically given space or treated with dimension.


As a contributor to San Diego Magazine under "Christine Pasalo" and Popverse by ReedPop, she profiles artists, creatives, writers, and entrepreneurs from historically marginalized communities.


Before founding Hello Barkada, she coordinated volunteers as well as produced events, programs, and social media and website content for Comic-Con International and the Comic-Con Museum.


Currently, Christine provides creative services to Townspeople and WinC Magazine, and volunteers with United AAPI Artists. She is also a member of Women in Comics Collective International and United AAPI Artists, and appeared as a guest at Virtuous Con: Black History Month 2022.
