Kristie is a photographer, educator, and arts administrator based in Chicago. Her photographic work focuses on capturing dance, music, editorial portraits, and performance. 

Remaining close to her first passion of dance, she has spent over a decade as a part of the Chicago dance community through her camera, photographing everything from ballet to b-boy crews to capoeira to tap dance. Her photography has been published in Dance Magazine, Pointe Magazine, Chicago Magazine, amongst many others, and has been used for promotional materials for performing arts organizations nationwide. In 2012, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, she published her first photo book, The Beauty of the Sequence: A Photo Essay of the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series. The book project was subsequently featured in Yoga Journal publications in the United States, Australia, and Japan. 

Kristie received a BA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago, and she is currently a graduate student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, studying Arts Administration & Policy. Her work has been supported by grants from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and the Illinois Arts Council.

Kristie is proud to be a contributing photographer and writer for Sixty Inches From Center. View some of her contributions here.
