Kristin has been baking up dessert delights since she was a young girl, all while watching and learning alongside her mother, grandmother, and Julia Child who was playing on the small black & white TV in the kitchen. After moving to New York City after her undergraduate studies, she worked at jobs in advertising, the music industry, and a commercial music house. She played drums in bands in New York City and did sound design for theater. All the while, she baked in her tiny Brooklyn apartment in what was left of her free time and made a baking blog called "GOP Recipes" where all desserts were named and inspired by famous Republicans (Ronald Reagan Rugelach, Sarah Paline Pralines, and Rush Limbaugh Lemon Bars are samples of fare). Kristin is not a Republican. Soon she was traveling around the world with Nature Theater of Oklahoma as a performer. Kristin provided the entire text (in the form of her life story) for NTO's magnum opus "Life and Times" - an almost 24 hour performance experience. On the off year that they had some time off, Kristin went to pastry school and graduated at the top of her class (being awarded "Top Toque", sponsored by Nespresso. And therefore, also by George Clooney). She did her externship at Jean-Georges and learned from some of the best pastry chefs in New York City. She makes wedding cakes and other desserts on a freelance basis. Continuing her work as an artist and as a pastry chef, she will fuse her skills and craft in a live performance baking show "The Recipe", previewing at Gowanus Arts and Production in September 2015.
