Born and raised in the Big Apple, Kristin is a proud alum of both NYC's Macaulay Honors College and Bronx High School of Science. She serves as a contributing writer for various blogs and publications, and works as a part-time SAT writing instructor. A fervent shutterbug, theater buff, voracious reader, bonafide gourmand, and cardmaking enthusiast, Kristin is an eager globetrotter who has been fortunate enough to have already journeyed to nearly a dozen foreign countries (including Italy, France, Hungary, Spain, and most recently, Costa Rica!) in her short 23 years. She currently resides in Riverdale, NY.
