Kristie Chairil is a freelance writer and Los Angeles native. When she isn't tutoring high school English, traveling, or writing, you can invariably find her immersed in a new Netflix series. Her non-streaming hobbies are all book-related: doodling calligraphy in notebooks, reading novels, sight-reading piano scores. If she had to pick a favorite bake, she'd choose the lemon poppyseed muffin — paired with a creamy Earl Grey. For more of Kristie's writing, check out www.clippings.me/kchairil.
