Hi, I’m Kristin! Back in 2015, I created the online music publication, Currently Streaming. I am extremely passionate about music and wanted to share that with fellow music lovers, but I first had to find a way to network myself into an industry that is known to be notoriously difficult to break into. After months of researching how to do so, I decided the best path for me was to start my own outlet.
Later on, Currently Streaming developed a need for a music photographer. Though I was familiar with photography thanks to my Mom, I had no experience of my own. I went out and bought my first camera, found someone willing to take a chance on me and landed my first show (Parkway Drive), and ever since then I’ve never looked back.
Since then, I’ve covered numerous shows. I still can’t believe some of the opportunities I’ve been able to have and I’m extremely grateful to anyone who has given me the chance to further my passion.
Music, writing, and photography have fueled me over the years. I’ve never felt more at home than when I’m immersed in these worlds, and when they combine, nothing compares. My ultimate goal is to showcase the passion that bands have for their music through the passion I have for theirs. If you’d like to work together or chat, shoot me an email!
