Kristin had an interest in Japan since an early age. Her interest likely started with a book on Japan that her mother shared when she was growing up. This interest is a part of how she discovered anime, and she binge-watched the first season of Naruto (several times)! Kristin had dreams on visiting Japan one day, and her dreams finally came true when her husband brought her to Japan to marry her! Since Alex started NOVA in 2014, Kristin has been involved in NOVA helping with her creative direction.
Kristin has a background in visual web development and has used this to assist NOVA's development.
