Name: Kristin Tieche
Lives in: San Francisco, California, USA.
From: I was born in San Francisco and grew up just across the Golden Gate Bridge in Mill Valley, California.
Occupation: I wear many hats! I am currently an editor for a true crime television series, and I am producing and directing a feature documentary called “The Invisible Mammal,” a film about bats in North America and a team of amazing women in science dedicated to protecting them.
Tell us your first three jobs (ever!): One of my first jobs involved feeding the neighbors’ cats. I am a huge fan of cats so that was fun. 🙂 Then I got a job assembling bagels and cream cheese that were sold in corner stores. We were paid 10 cents a bagel–total exploitation and probably some labor violations.. Then I got a job at a movie theater, and that seemed to be a career I could stick with. 🙂
Zodiac sign: Virgo
Enneagram type: Type 7, Enthusiast
What do you love about Greece? I really want to visit Greece! I never have. I want to go to the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. I am fascinated with the Cult of Virgin Birth.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you: Well, you probably don’t know that I have an adorable 8-lb chihuahua named Zizou. I got him in December of 2020 after living in isolation for a year. My life is so much better for it! He is a great companion whether we’re outdoor dining, camping, hiking, kayaking, you name it!
Where we are most likely to find you in Lynn’s Kundalini Yoga? I really want to attend Lynn’s rooftop yoga one of these days. I’ve seen so many pictures, and it’s a dream of mine to attend in person one day!
The first time you tried Kundalini Yoga?: I really think Lynn introduced me to Kundalini. I usually practice vinyasa flow, but I see the benefits of all forms of yoga!
Tell us your top tip to combat climate change: Since I’m currently working on a wildlife film (about bats), I cannot stress the value of protecting wild spaces for wildlife. Wildlife habitats keep our ecosystem in balance and tend to be carbon sinks. We need to value and restore our wild spaces, whether they’re wetlands, prairies, kelp beds, forests… you name it.
Anything else you’d like us to know? I’m currently running a crowdfunding campaign for my film, “ The Invisible Mammal,” which launches on Monday, April 11 for 30 days. Go to www.theinvisiblemammal.com to make a donation and learn more about the film. We are in our last year of filming, and we’ll move onto editing in the fall of 2022. The world premiere is scheduled for late 2023 or early 2024. You can learn more about my work here.
