As a child growing up in a quiet suburb in Los Angeles County, Kristine naturally gravitated towards creative endeavours such as drawing, piano, singing, films, and books. These interests soon developed into a passion for screen scoring and film. After finishing her undergraduate degree at the University of California, Irvine, Kristine is now pursuing masters degree in Screen Scoring at New York University.  


Her main influences include Ludwig Göransson, Ramin Djawadi, Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, Ennio Morricone, Hans Zimmer, Natalie Holt, Jon Brion, Nicholas Britell, and scores from Rockstar Games such as The Music of Grand Theft Auto V Vol. 2 and Red Dead Redemption 2.

Outside of film, she writes and produces indie electronic music inspired by artists like Toro y Moi, Tame Impala, and J Dilla.
