Anderson was born in Corona, CA on Oct. 20, 1978. After
his 1st birthday he moved to Sonora, CA. It was there
that brother Kirk was born on May 26, 1981. During Christian's
3rd grade year he moved to Lodi, CA where he attended
Lodi Elementary School and later Lodi Academy.
Christian has many fond memories of
Lodi Academy where most of his time was spent hanging
out with friends, Sushil, Kevin, Chuck, Dana, Keith,
Matt, Chester and many others in his class. Any time
he wasn't out cruising the streets of Lodi with his
friends he could be found in the shop restoring his
After graduating from Lodi Academy
in 1997 Christian moved into the dorms at Pacific Union
College where he would study Digital Media Technology.
didn't take long (2 weeks) before Christian met Tara.
It was during one evening in the cafeteria when Christian
spotted this beautiful girl talking with one of his
friends. He sat down, introduced himself and a few minutes
later had a date for Saturday night. Not only did he
get a date for himself but also for his good friend
Sushil who was coming up to visit for the weekend. One
of Tara's friends would complete the double date.
When the evening came, the four of
them piled into Christian's Mustang and headed to Napa
for a movie. The date went so well, Christian and Tara
decided to go out again the next night. After their
2nd date, as Christian was dropping Tara off at her
dorm one of her favorite songs came on the radio. While
listening to the music Christian asked if he could kiss
her goodnight. Knowing better than to wait for an answer,
he leaned over and gave Tara her goodnight kiss.
a few more dates and several late night talks, Christian
and Tara decided to make it official, they were now
"boyfriend" and "girlfriend". The
next few years were filled with fun times getting to
know each other. Many of these times were spent touring
San Francisco and the Napa Valley and taking several
trips together to various locations. They also spent
many a school night studying together in the lobby of
Winning Hall or the basement of the library.
During his Junior year of college Christian,
along with his cousin Erik and friend Paul, decided
to try something different and study for a quarter in
London. Time passed quickly and before he knew it he
was back at PUC. Christian and Tara were back together
but it wasn't long before they both decided to go abroad
again. Tara was heading to Spain for a year this time
and Christian would be spending another quarter in London;
this time with his cousin Andy. It was a long 10 months
but Tara returned just in time to be with Christian
as he graduated from PUC in June of 2001.
following graduation Christian was offered a position
at PUC to teach in the Digital Media Department half
time and to work on PUC's website half time. It was
a perfect job that allowed Christian to spend another
year at PUC with Tara while she finished her B.A. in
After Tara's graduation, Christian
decided it was time to move on and began looking for
a position outside of Angwin. He took time off from
his search to travel Europe again with Kirk and Justin.
It was during this trip he made a stop in Amsterdam
to purchase the perfect diamond he would later give
Tara when he proposed. After completing several contract
assignments, including one that sent him to Copenhagen,
Denmark, Christian was offered a full time position
as a Database Engineer/Web Designer for Conference Planners.
He is currently living in San Mateo and anxiously awaiting
his wedding day and the honeymoon in Hawaii!
