My name is Krys, and many times people have called me the Jack of All Trades.
So…inevitably, here we are.
I am a:
Musician. I have been a singer since I was three years old, and was classically trained through school. After I graduated college, I decided to pursue something very different from the choir/musical theater background that I had gained. My band is called Spirit Descending, and I am the singer, co-composer and lyricist for the band. We have been together for a little over 6 years now and are finally gaining some traction on getting our music beyond the walls of central California. It’s melodic/symphonic/progressive Metal, influenced by various styles taken in by each member of the band.
Actor. With choral and theater under my belt as well, I came to realize how much fun it is to work in the arts as an actor. Two of my favorite shows to date have to be Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Guys & Dolls. In both shows, I played very very different characters but the experiences were wonderful. I recently started my venture into the Voice Over field, and have already been featured in YouTube videos, animation and video games. Back in January, I had the pleasure of working on the film Aventura, which came through my small town here in Cen Cal, as a background actor. I’m working on a few projects now to try my hand at casting and direction…stay tuned on my page for more on that. 😉
Author. Back in the day, when I was about six or seven, I started to read a lot. Shel Silverstein, R.L. Stine, and all those fun books kids my age were reading. As I got older, I started to realize that I really truly wanted to create my own stories. I have offered my writing into several different outlets, including blogging, editing, role-playing (yup, I went there), and more. My first book, Falling Stars, which is the sequel to Ellie Potts’ Seeing Stars is a contemporary romance that is now available on Amazon. I do have more books lined up for the coming months and will be announcing them here and on my official website, krysjanae.com.
Gamer. Growing up with two brothers, I had the pleasure of playing video games. It didn’t stop me from playing with dolls or action figures, it just expanded my entertainment horizon. When I first picked up the controller and experienced what it was like to control the plumber in the red hat or the hungry man who ran from ghosts, I was instantly hooked. Gaming has definitely evolved into something amazing, sometimes blurring the lines between reality and fantasy and has kept my interest even with all of the awesome changes throughout the years.
Overall, I love to create things. I love to cast my line out into different ponds, to get as much out in the creative outlets as I possibly can. I also love collaboration, so anyone who would like to create music with me, write with me, make a film with me, it would be my honor.
I will be blogging more often (as often as I possibly can) so thank you all so much for taking the time to look into a brief blog overview of who I am and what I plan to bring to this space of the web.
