Kristi is a designer based in Brooklyn. She is a graduate of Pratt Institute with a Masters of Science degree in Interior Design. She received her undergraduate education at Michigan State University as a Humanities major concentrating in Studio Art, Art History and Interior Design. Kristi began practicing art at a very young age but with her family's influence in real estate development, the fields melded together and design proved to be her passion. Kristi believes that architecture should begin with studying what goes on within, focusing on sustainability and working with substance that already exists. Kristi is quite the conversationalist -- she is upbeat and loves a good discussion. Besides writing and creating great design, she likes exploring new places, staying physically fit and enjoys keeping to a healthy flexitarian diet.
