Previously at Sony Music's Sync Shop (Columbia, Epic, RCA, etc.), Heavy Duty Music, and Downtown Publishing, Kristin has worked across all media securing sync placements for both frontline and catalog music in high-visibility projects worldwide. A music supervisor earlier in her career for both independent films and VICE's TV Network, VICELAND, Kristin got her start at MTV working in the News & Docs department on shows like "Catfish: The TV Show" and "True Life" in NYC before moving out west for a 7 year stint in Los Angeles in 2013.
