Kristina is an actress based in New York City. Raised half in beautiful Munich, Germany, and half in Brookline, MA, she is fluent in both English and German. In 2010 Kristina received her BFA in Theatre from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, where she studied at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting. Also an alumna of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, she discovered her love for Shakespeare while overseas.
Since graduation, she has worked on several theatre and film projects in New York. One of her favorite experiences was playing Rose in Grasses Of A Thousand Colors at The Public Theatre, written by and starring Wallace Shawn and directed by André Gregory. Season 1 and 2 of her award winning web series, BE Bettina & Elaine, which she created, wrote, produced and starred in with her friend Calaine Schafer, are available to watch at www.BEtheseries.com. She is also the co-founder of The Reuptake Project, a devised theatre initiative which aims to raise awareness for and end the stigma around depression and mental illness.
She passionately believes in theatre and film as wonderfully collaborative creative endeavors that can make a difference and also that proper prior planning, plus persistence, plus patience prevent piss-poor performance.
