Troy Christian started his journey in the entertainment industry as a professional musician - playing woodwinds and as a musical director and producer.  Simultaneously, with a lifelong passion for theater and movement,  Troy took his dancing shoes to New York to train at the Joffrey School of Ballet, Broadway Dance Center and Steps - his hard work and proper training leading to a long career dancing and acting on Broadway, television and film - one that continues to this day. (Credits including: The Good Place, VEEP, RENT, Rango, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Muppet Movie, Deadwood, Disjointed, Bless This Mess and Forrest Gump).  For Troy, the natural progression to choreography and creative direction would follow. From theater to television, social media and film, Troy has created hundreds of theatrical productions, television shows, commercials, music videos, films, social media campaigns and corporate events including: Usher, Ellen, Lily Allen, N.E.R.D., John Fogerty, Dolly Parton, Culinary Escapes, Universal Studios, Elvira, Princess Cruises, Paramount Theme Parks, Disney,  Jimmy Kimmel, BLUEPRINTnyc, Harley Davidson, and was the co creator of The Industry Dance Awards. In 2007 Troy received the Choreography Media Honors Award presented at the Directors Guild of America for his work on the feature film Adam & Steve (Craig Chester, Parker Posey, Malcom Getz, Chris Kattan). In 1999, Troy began studying the art (and science) of filmmaking. With a keen understanding of composition and choreography, timing and music, and now cameras, technology and editing, his evolution to film director and editor was seamless. Credits include:  A Perfect Vintage (Documentary), Sam Presents (Short), The Evolution of Stem Cell Research (Documentary featuring Leonard Nimoy), John Fogerty Tour Opening, Naked Boys Singing (Feature Film of Off Broadway Musical), Nuts and Bolts - the Making of Adam & Steve, The Making of Adrian Zmed in Concert (Documentary) as well as many television commercials and music videos. Troy's path as an artist has afforded him the ability to utilize all of his creative talents congruently. With the ability to conceive, write and design, to speak the language of music, dance, and choreography, as well as the ability to see through the camera lens with the eye of a director/editor, Troy has literally “stepped" into his life’s work as a one of a kind Creative Director.
