About me

Hey, guys! I'm Kristin, and I create things. Things like pictures, words, publicity and poor knock-knock jokes. I love everything graphic design, writing and branding/marketing/pr. ​ You may think it's a lot, and it is, but I love doing it all and can't settle in just one area. Because I am a bit of a hybrid, I'm able to work on many different types of projects within one company. I love working with various industries, but my passion will always be in the entertainment biz. Below are some of my past and present companies and brands I've worked with... ​ Joffrey Ballet School - publicity, social media content, web presence Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers - graphic design, copywriting, marketing Wonda Music - publicity, social media content, social media presence Platinum Sound Recording Studios - branding, publicity, marketing The Bessies (NY Dance Awards) - publicity and marketing Houston Met Ballet Company - social media content and web presence Astro Lasso - graphic design, content, music publicity FirstCom Music - graphic design, blog content New Jersey Tap Ensemble - media consultant The Culture Trip - lifestyle and entertainment article content Contemporary Ballet Dallas - graphic design, writing, branding and PR
