I am a senior level designer with experience in the creative industry as a designer for Canadian companies from coast to coast. Acting exclusively as the 360° designer for these companies has allowed me to produce work in all aspects of design from concept to completion - including web, print, apparel, branding, and consulting.
I graduated from UBC with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree, majoring in photography. Yep - I went to Art school. I specialize in portraiture with both directing and studio experience behind the lens. Additionally, I have worked on film sets and with brands to capture that magical moment for my clients.
Kristi is an absolute delight to work with and any team would be lucky to have her. She brought immense value to Skiis & Biikes through her efficiency, attention to detail and interest in analytics. With Kristi on our team we were able to quadruple our output, and the compliments on our campaign creative came pouring in. She is a talented designer who prioritizes the user and the end goal, while paying close attention to the data. Additionally, she's a great collaborator and true team player. Kristi is eager to learn and get her hands dirty, always goes above and beyond and still comes to work every day with a smile on her face.

VERENA FUCUNDO // CREATIVE CONSULTING CLIENT
Kristi is very professional while working, but creates a fun and comfortable setting for her client. Her passion and creativity is endless resulting in stunning photos. I fell in love with the photos she took of me instantly. Not only did she give appropriate direction in what she needed from me as a model, but she also styled my hair and makeup to help her concept come to life. When you come to set she always has a strong vision that is executed brilliantly. I would be fortunate to take part in any future photo shoots with her.
DALLIS LESLIE // PHOTOGRAPHY CLIENT
I have never modeled before shooting with Kristi, but my nerves vanished as the environment proved to be comfortable and non-intimidating. To begin with, Kristi created a very calm, exciting, fun atmosphere. She solely directed the whole shoot. She set up the backdrop, lighting, make-up and outfits. Although there were many different styles and transitions, they did not hinder the shoot making it too tedious or long. In fact the shoot had a wonderful flow; there was never a dull or stressful moment.
Kristi had a clear vision and knew exactly what she wanted. However, if something didn’t go as planned, she was open to changing or tweaking her idea to make the shoot work. My little experience aside, Kristi knew exactly how to shoot my angles and directed me with ease. The whole time she was very positive and encouraging. She never lost her vision and stayed very calm. She never got frustrated if there was a technical problem or I if I was struggling. The photos turned out amazing and I still cannot believe I am the subject.
Kristi has an wonderful ability to find beauty in anyone and bring it out through her photographs. She is a people person, with a beautiful energy which fills the room. The whole shoot went effortlessly. I would definitely work with Kristi again.
