Kristina is a photographer + creative director with a background in arts administration + ophthalmology. Yeah. Kristina's vision for MPLS Creates is driven by her passion for encouraging all things creative. Though a nomad at heart, she always returns to her first love, Minneapolis! She once spent an entire month traveling around the USA on Greyhound buses...so there's that. Kristina drinks more coffee than is socially accepted, has an absurdly large collection of film cameras + eyewear, and she bikes in the winter.

Alexa can be found learning and creating at all times; whether that is taking a class to build a website, reading books, creating photographs, seeing films, finding a new recipe to try or getting lost in the inspiration of Instagram. She curates, a lot; clothes, furniture, art supplies, groceries, anything to decorate a space. You never know when a) you're going to need it or b) you want to impress someone. Alexa is very much an introvert, but she will be weird in the right room. Although she hasn't quite figured out her calling, she knows it will involve travel + design.
