KRISTEN SARAH – CEO of Hopscotch the Globe, Host, Producer, Camera Operator, Editor, Writer
“If you are a traveler with an unquenchable curiosity, seeking a better understanding of other cultures, and a greater appreciate for the beauty and diversity of our planet, it’s best to travel the world as a participant rather than a spectator, and that’s what Kristen does. Her enthusiasm for adventure is contagious, pulling the viewer into her stories. Her video skills, both camera work and editing, are a bonus that help make her stories engaging, but it’s her personality that pushes Kristen’s reporting to the next level, making you want to go along on the journey with her.” Boyd Matson, Journalist and Adventurer
