She's interviewed a large number of entrepreneurs, artists, makers and creative via her podcast, Chapter Be, and storytelling project, The Be Stories. Living by the notion that "not all who wander are lost," Kïrsten Blake has lived and worked in New York City/Brooklyn, Washington D.C., St. Thomas (USVI) and Denver, CO. She worked in the public education field for 10+ years, but in 2011 made the decision to leave her nine-to-five desk job in pursuit of something new.
