Hey there!

I'm Christi Tasker,
serial globetrotter, world-renowned entrepreneur, designer & founder of P.S. This Rocks. I spend more than 50% of my life traveling for clients & promise pure fun

Based in Miami, Florida, my husband Boyd and I consider anywhere in the world to be less than 24 hours away. Stressing over travel only occurs when all of the flights are booked if we’re on the way to the airport. 

Being a manufacturer of my CHRISTI TASKER products, my passport is the thickest one available, and it’s stamped with hundreds of stamps plus a 20-year Chinese Visa.

I love to travel to designer tradeshows, art fairs, events, and openings to help people and brands succeed. I also discover people and products for my brands on every journey.

About &Raquo; Miami Interior Designer &Raquo;

As an interior designer with my own Atlanta-based design firm, in 1999, I began traveling globally to source custom handmade products

Pioneer DESIGN INFLUENCERS turned travel bloggers

I grew up traveling to craft shows in the 1980s. My mom was in every famous juried craft show throughout the US. By age 9, I began recycling my old jeans into jewelry. 

Then, mom unintentionally started an interior design business. That too was a HUGE success! Soon after getting fired from my two day a week after pregnancy banking job, I joined my mother in her interior design business. My first tasks were product sourcing. At the time, I had no idea it was called “sourcing,”  nor did I know I was a “buyer.” That’s a whole ‘nother story. That led to a complete career in design & manufacturing. I won’t bore you too much with that here. 

Then one day, while speaking at a conference in Palm Springs California, I met this British gentleman who bought me and my friends a mojito.

My husband Boyd and I travel with our furbabies @TravelingPoodles

In 2011, for Christmas, we rescued our first little furlove, Bentley the original @TravelingPoodle. He was only a few months old when Boyd and I had to travel at the same time. He was enrolled in Camp Bow Wow Las Vegas where they loved him. He just never grew to love them. Evidently, he longed to travel with mom and dad because he a never lost his appetite and adapted to the life of travel. 

Then we discovered Bentley made an awesome certified ESA dog so onto his certificate and on his first flight we went.

In 2020, despite not saying a word his account with over 18k followers was removed from Instagram during the first censorship purge. His videos and photos with people globally went along with it. Sadly, it was one of the things that made people smile. 

The furbabies definitely made my mother-in-love smile until she passed away in 2021. It was a rough year. At the almost ripe age of 90, she always asked about Bentley and referenced her beloved Sophie. Boyd had named the majority of his other pets Sophie in their memory. That was all until he wanted to name our oldest furson “Frosty” while living in Las Vegas. 

Both the vet and the groomer simultaneously convinced me to rename him. Boyd and Macy settled on Bentley. We said he was the only Bentley we’d ever own. Mostly because we think Bentley’s are cheaply made, overpriced vehicles. And if you’re wealthy enough to own one – why not go for the Rolls Royce?

Our next furson was purchased in 2021 in honor of my mother-in-law. Knowing Boyd and his mother’s love for dogs, I thought there was not a better time to re-check the plandemic poodles availability. Like everyone else, Boyd had wanted me to find a second fur son. Really – he’s always afraid Bentley will die, and we’ll be without a dog.

FUN FACTS

01

I always travel with a carry-on filled with forgivable stretch clothing styled with great jackets, blazers, & awesome conversational earrings. It pays off in upgrades. 

02

Traveling more than 50% of the year, I chose to get on a plane and go to Asia from January 2020 – March 2020. [Most eye-opening trip of my life.] 

03

Boyd proposed to me in a castle on a Dominican Republic mountaintop. Later we married in the D.R. where my wedding cake design was lost in translation.

04

Good travel plans always include time to walk, talk with locals, and learn about surrounding culture, history & even politics.

About &Raquo; Miami Interior Designer &Raquo;

Let's get this flashback party started

1980-1994

I grew up with two entrepreneurs and a banker grandmother that thought being an entrepreneur meant “you can’t get a job”. 

In 1990, I won a Best of Atlanta Modeling Scholarship to John Casablancas and shortly began modeling for Elite New York modeling the first ever clothing line for L.A. Gear

I played basketball but hated to run in practice. I still save my energy for the championship plays. Why waste energy practicing when you can just plan for the perfect shot? JK. 

At age 14, I begged my way to work at the most famous clothing store in the mall. Remember IOU? Merry Go Round? Well, I worked at DJs for three years during High School. I became assistant manager then was recruited by County Seat the Jean Store. 

During my senior year of High School, I conceptualized the “Red Neck Float,” complete with a bucking bull for homecoming because the other floats were too boring and didn’t have entertainment.

1999 -

Nine months after I gave birth, I was bored and losing my mind staying at home, so I went back to work at the bank as a two-day-a-week commercial drive-through teller.

About 12 months after working two days a week, I was approved for two days of unpaid vacation for a family trip to Disney World. Two days before the trip I was told they revoked the vacation time, but I went anyway. Since being fired for insubordination, I have never had a job since.

Yep! I'm a bicentennial babe

Growing up with two Korean War cousins, I love being the boss, riding horses, cows & four-wheelers, the smell of rice, anything sweet to eat. Just don’t ask me to share anything but social media posts & good stories. Sharing candy and food was never my strong suit. Read my mom’s story of me & the EXaLax.

Ways To Raise Kids To Be Successful Adults, Macy Elizabeth Tullis Fortner

-1995

In 1995, I was working at First National Bank of Gainesville as a commercial teller and was married, not barefoot and pregnant with this little grinning baby girl. 

In 1997, I began sourcing products for my mother’s in-home interior design business

With my online and by-phone wholesale sourcing abilities we began using her driveway as a receiving warehouse. Shortly after that, the City of Suwanee refused to renew our business license citing us with too much traffic coming and going for a home-based business.
