Hi, I'm Kristen.

I’m generally pretty useless.

This is not false modesty or being clever—it’s a fact.

I’m a terrible driver. I own no property, have no kids, no real savings. I’m not married, I’m short, have way too much energy and a dog that resembles a wolf (certainly not your average Marie-Claire reader).

In fact the only thing that has kept me from spending my life aggressively waving a paper cup at passers-by or holding up an awkwardly bent thumb along the highway, (while holding a cardboard sign and blowing spit into a harmonica,) is my work and a few Instagram photos that Travel Oregon and The Clymb sometimes pay me for.

I am a copywriter by trade, a runner by impulse, and a collaborator by process.
