A Website Worth An Oscar!

Central Park 2 February just flew by! It was an eventful month – I walked the Nine West runaway, shoe modeled for Sperry, performed patriotic songs in celebration of Estonia’s 97th Independence Day and enjoyed watching all of the award shows!

I would like to say a special thank you to Elizabeth Sommerschield at Actors Web Studio who built my new website. I’m so excited because there are a lot of fun new features to experience such as press, blog, social media, music and picture links. Click here for cruising around!

A historical moment – Estonia was nominated for an Oscar, for the first time ever, for the movie “Tangerines.” Even though we were not victorious on the night, it was a tremendous honor to be nominated and we have received great recognition through the films exposure.

All the best,

Diploma for a piece of heaven!

1 copy 2 I know it’s already close to the end of January, but I’m still going to say it — Happy New Year! May this year bring you lots of joy, new experiences, challenges and success in every aspect of your life!

This year, I sent off 2014 in -25 degree Fahrenheit weather in Lapland, which was definitely a new experience. It’s the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life! But despite being frozen to the bone (it was so cold my eyelashes had a layer of frost on them), I enjoyed every second of being across the polar line surrounded by the most breathtaking views nature has to offer!

In the beginning of January, I received a huge surprise from the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs — a thank you diploma for co-organizing the Arvo Pärt concert series in America last May. It was such an huge honor to be a part of this concert series, but I also feel humbled to be acknowledged for my efforts in such an amazing way.

Arvo Pärt is the most played living composer in the world, according to the largest classical event database Bachtrack, and there’s a reason for that— his music is divine. It’s like a piece of heaven on earth! Click here to discover more about his magnificent music I was able to experience and present this past year.

All the best wishes,
Kristi

Business Breakthrough and e-Residency!

1-2 I Love Christmas! It’s my favorite holiday for one very simple reason— I get to be with my family! My family is very big and we live all over the world, but this is the one time of the year that we are finally able to gather together and stay under the same roof. The house is filled with joy, love and Christmas spirit, and I can never get enough of that. It’s simply magical.

Christmas is also a time of great reflection, a time to look at the accomplishments of the past year and to celebrate them with family and friends. One of the most exciting accomplishment this year was graduating from the Dallas Travers Actors Business Breakthrough program. It was a truly eye opening and inspiring experience, and I learned so much about myself and the industry that I’m in.

I’ve also had a busy year in terms of taking on many exciting jobs as you can see from the banner above. The words in the banner symbolize this year’s many professional accomplishments, the amazing people I’ve collaborated with, and the dynamic and positive changes in my artistry. I am filled with excitement about this past year. Thank you to everyone who made it so inspiring!

Being around my family during this special time of year not only inspires me to continue to work hard and achieve my goals, it also reminds me of where I come from. I hope you don’t mind that I’m going to “brag” a little about Estonia, but my homeland truly is an amazing place. Estonia is well known for being one of the most advanced e-society and e-economies in the world. Estonia has e-police, e-school and e-cabinet, and now Estonia is the first country in the world to offer e-Residency! How awesome is that?! Click here if you would like to learn more!

Last but not least, I want to wish you a Merry Christmas filled with joy, fun and loving relationships!
