My Gear

I used to be a die-hard Apple user with all those Adobe products, but since moving abroad have adopted an Android phone and Chromebook for most of my daily work. I have a GoPro I should probably use more, too.


Kristin received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Magazine Journalism from Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, with minors in Spanish and Linguistics. When she’s not writing, she teaches English classes and tries to keep a streak going on Duolingo. She has also dabbled in HTML and Python courses and is always looking for a new Coursera class to audit.
