Kristin on IMDB


“Kristin managed various technical writing projects independently and developed excellent working relationships with each client/manager. Her creativity, communication skills, and attention to detail established her as one of the most requested writers and contributors on the team.” – Jeri Condit, Editor-in-Chief, MSN Living


“The multiple times I have hired Kristin, she’s produced brilliant writing that is concise, full of life and clarity. I feel lucky to have her rare skills available as I usually give limited direction, require strong SEO web writing with very constrained deadlines. I completely trust her research and writing abilities as well as gut instincts when it comes to my client’s projects and the value she provides me and my firm consistently. – John Miguel Plail, Founder, Bomb Agency


“I discovered Kristin when looking for someone to write, research and help me with dialogue on my feature film, ‘THE TOY BOX.’ She was a great researcher, listened to instruction, and took direction on how I wanted the storyline to go. She even helped with the copywriting. I highly recommend her for work on any screenplay, as she is diverse and creative.” – Michael Colburn, DTR Films
