Creative Director & Designer


“Kristen’s consistent (and infallible) taste, coupled with her UX skills, helped Homepolish totally shake up the world of hired-help home decoration.”


I’m a multifaceted and collaborative creative lead living in Brooklyn, New York.

I am currently the Creative Director at Homepolish, heading up the Brand Creative team. Previously, I’ve designed for Gilt Groupe and IAC.

My spirited attention to detail and eye for clean, thoughtful design pairs well with my background in UX and psychology. Just as much as I love leading a team, I also enjoy collaborating cross-functionally to find the unique personality of a brand and manifest it through design, photography, and voice—then elevate and evolve it through its lifecycle.

I believe that a quiet, design-oriented life, one that is steeped in curiosity and purpose, can enhance one’s experiences and relationships. I’m also a self-taught coder, a fanatical Instagrammer, and one of Carl Sagan’s biggest fans.
