  • Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon has a lifelong fascination with royals and just so happens to be distantly related to Princess Diana -- no big deal. She has followed the royal family for as long as she can remember, watches every royal wedding on TV, and stays up-to-date on their latest activities.
  • A political junkie, Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon cut her teeth on the political circuit first as the assistant editor and then the editor-in-chief of the now-defunct DL Magazine. She has covered three presidential elections to date, following not only political candidates but also their families.
  • Whether it's '90s sitcoms, '00s teen dramas, or rom-coms, or Disney flicks, Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon has probably seen it -- more than once. A treasure trove of useful and not-so-useful fun facts, she brings her knowledge of pop culture to the team at The List.


Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon's passion for writing began at the age of 6, when she joined the staff of her school's newspaper as a roving reporter. In the years since, she has honed her skills as a journalist, copywriter, ghostwriter, book reviewer, sensitivity reader, and editor. Since beginning her professional writing career over a decade ago, she has covered a wide range of topics including politics, history, royals, film, and TV. Christine has been writing the "Barkada Tayo" column in the Filipino Star News since 2014 and has penned several poetry collections, including "From These Islands I Rise," which hit number one on the Amazon Best Sellers list in Asian American poetry. Christine's words have been published in Mic, Glamour, Allure, HuffPost, Amendo, What Rough Beast, The Drabble, Brilliant Flash Fiction, Marias at Sampaguitas, and more. She is the Content Director and co-founder of multimedia platform Samahan.


Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon attended Madonna University (no connection to the singer) where she was pre-law and majored in piano performance and English. After enrolling in Thomas M. Cooley Law School, she realized that she was more Lois Lane than Elle Woods and left her law studies to pursue a career in writing.
