About

Kristen Nicole Miller

I have a bachelor’s degree in Telecommunication: Digital Media, Arts  & Technologies and a specialization in film studies from Michigan State University. I am extremely organized, social and outgoing. I have a very adventurous personality and take pleasure in meeting new people and making friends. I enjoy taking risks, discovering new events/festivals and creating memories through new experiences!
