THE BLOOM OF MY ADVENTUROUS YOUTH SPENT EXPLORING, PHOTOGRAPHING,
AND WRITING IN AND ABOUT THE OUTDOORS
HAS NEVER FADED.

IT WAS THE VERTIGO OF SUMMER. DAYS TENANTED WITH LAKESIDE ADVENTURES OF DISCOVERY AND PLEASANCE. THE HATCHING OF PAINTED TURTLES, CHANCE ENCOUNTERS WITH NESTS OF GARTER SNAKES OR SALAMANDERS. FROG CATCHING. FIREFLY TRAPPING. SQUISHY CLAY DUG WITH SMALL HANDS FROM WATER'S EDGE. SLOPPY MUD-CAKES AND FRIABLE MUD-BALLS MOLDED ATOP DOCK PLANKS FASTENED WITH 10-PENNY NAILS. SUNNY DAYS OF DRAGONFLIES, CANE POLE FISHING, SCRAWNY LEGS WITH SCABBED KNEES POKING OUT OF FRAYED CUT-OFFS. ROWING CIRCLE AND CIRCLES AROUND A SMALL UNIMPRESSIVE LAKE. UTTERLY DIZZIED BY FEELING BOUNDLESS, FREE, AND SWALLOWED UP BY THE OUTDOORS.
"Krissie has a keen ear and sharp eye to her writing, digital design, and photography. She's also great with a wide range of people and projects moving seamlessly from one variety of content creation to the next. She's organized, very task-and deadline-driven, and brings a sense of fun to all her assignments."
