You Probably Won’t Believe Me,

But you're right on time.

I'm Kristina and since 2005, I've written about chasing your passions, finding your voice, making your art, and the struggle to do it all with a 9-5.

I'm not going to hit you with a sexy book trailer or endorsement, I'm just going to tell you the truth: If you love something, and you're willing to be bad at it (for a while), you can make a living off of it. Creativity is in all of us, but it's up to us to share it.

This site is a collection of my thoughts and conversations as I try to share my own creativity.
I hope you're inspired.
