About Christian Buckley

Christian Buckley is a Staff Writer and former Social Lead at TechRaptor. With a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and a decade of content creation and podcast production experience for his personal YouTube endeavors, Christian brings his passion for sharing conversation around games which was born when he first played Donkey Kong 64, Mario 64, and Crash 2, to the work he does for TechRaptor's social platforms in addition to his weekly video series, Low Poly.

Since 2020, Christian has been creating TikToks about his favorite things, from Star Wars, to Kingdom Hearts, and general gaming culture. Finding success on the platform led to freelance positions with the Dungeons & Dragons podcast 'Unprepared Casters' and a role on the TechRaptor Video Freelance roster before joining the TechRaptor team full time as Social Lead.

When he's not playing a game, you'll find Christian listening to Paramore on repeat while trying out a new recipe in his kitchen.
