About

Hello and thanks for visiting I’m Kristina.

If you’re hung-up on labels, I am a Black American, homeschooling, interracially married, non-believer, mom to a pre-teen daughter who identifies as non-binary and pansexual. I am currently the author of a Gather the Wind Zine, an effort to kick perfection-paralysis in the arse. I am also a writer for Woo Jr, and a Happiness Engineer for Automattic, Inc. I have been (and sometimes still am) an entrepreneur, a web designer, a social media consultant, a Tarot Interpreter, and a lover of all things blue, yellow, and green.

But I don’t like labels because I’m always evolving and I like the path that I am on.

My husband, daughter, and I left Yonkers, NY on December 25, 2012, and relocated to Arizona’s West Valley after feeling like NY had given us the best of its Apple. While we love the sun and the cost of living here, we sometimes wonder if maybe we should be somewhere less red in its political leanings.

In truth, I would be happiest on a large plot of land with multiple dogs, a few horses, a garden, and a library that would keep me occupied forever. I read almost everything and am never far away from my Kindle Paperwite, a real book, and my Commonplace notebook. Of course, don’t forget the very fast internet connection, because I love my job and how would I update my Kindle?!
