Born and raised between the Philippines and Bay Area, California, Christine has always been a bridge between cultures.


Founded by Christine Bumatay, Sosyal Gal is in the business of purposeful storytelling. Through individually tailored strategies, the vivacious influencer bridges the gap between audiences and brands.

Her love for food, art, and culture is evident, and she desires to work with Filipino businesses/restaurants and authentic food companies whose desire is to bring out-of-this-world plates to the table. She is on a lifelong mission to find the absolute best food in the world


On her spare time, you can find Christine eating kare-kare/lumpia/tacos, playing billiards, or singing karaoke. She is a voracious reader, die-hard foodie, and lover of espresso shots. Christine is almost always in the kitchen preparing home-cooked meals for a dinner party, or as she calls it: "R & D".  

Most importantly, she is an advocate for Filipino food, culture, and history. 


Christine recently graduated Cum Laude at the University of Southern California; prior to USC, she attended The American University of Paris to pursue Art History.
