b. 1986, HK.


My name is Kristin and I’m a business and culture journalist based in New York. I’ve reported on everything from the security of America’s election voting machines to the history of how the rainbow flag became a social and political symbol; from the economics of Amazon packaging to the history of Canada as a place of political refuge.

Currently, I’m working on a podcast for New York Magazine at Transmitter Media. I’ve also produced and reported podcasts and radio at WNYC, The Wall Street Journal and Marketplace, and have bylines at NPR, The Guardian and ESPN, among other publications.

I teach audio journalism at my alma mater, Columbia Journalism School.

My first journalism job was at Dance Magazine. A former bunhead, I have a BFA from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts and danced with companies in New York and Minneapolis.
