Hi! I’m Kristina, 

I am an art director graduating from Miami Ad School. I am originally from Russia, and as you can guess I got used to living an extreme lifestyle.

The decision of diving into an advertising career was definitely a good fit for me because it's even more extreme than to live with bears, snow and vodka.

Collectively, this all made me be very brave with my ideas, even though I am still very scared of horror movies. 

I learned to never get comfortable with places/people/work because I believe that great things happen outside of our comfort zones.
