Krystie is a firecracker on a mission to cultivate creative confidence in the next generation of BIPOC dreamers and doers. As a curious multi-hyphenate, she also works as a creativity coach and a brand + community consultant. When she’s not channeling her energy towards issues that move her, you can find her scheming in one of her many journals, basking in the sun with her dog, or dancing under the moonlight with friends.
Christina (xt) thrives on creating comforting spaces—whether it’s bringing people together for meaningful moments or building cultures that allow individuals to thrive. She hopes this work will allow her daughter and future hapas to celebrate their Asian American identity. When she’s not making magic with Slant’d, she’s likely enjoying a long run, an almond milk cappuccino by the window, or creating memories with her little family.
Jenn is a heart-led community builder that finds deep joy in the messy unknown. Here at Slant’d, she works to craft an abundant haven for Asian Americans to freely play, connect, and celebrate their personal stories. Based in Brooklyn (+ hailing from Philly!), Jenn is a glass artist, jewelry maker, and marketing and partnerships manager. Offline, she’s passionate about secondhand fashion, solo dance parties, her cats Galloway and Ibu.
Michelle always seeks to cultivate a sense of belonging - through championing stories that are often untold, trying to teach her little children about their multiethnic heritages, and always having the kettle ready for friends looking for quality time and a cuppa. At Slant'd, she leverages resources to make space for Asian Americans to be and express their whole selves. In her very limited spare time, Michelle can be found reading, eating pastries, or running through East London.
Emily is all the fire signs and it shows in her passion for getting things done and in her myriad of interests. At Slant’d, she hopes to help the team continue marching towards realizing their vision of elevating AAPI voices. A business person by trade, but an artist at heart, in her spare time Emily likes crafting with her children, cooking, podcasting, playing any type of racquet sport, and watching TV (hit her up for recommendations).
Dani is a dreamer and a do-er in a constant state of becoming. Finding joy in the wabi-sabi moments of life, she’s based in New York City and on a mission to advocate for AAPIs every moment she can. Dani is in flow when she’s taking big picture ideas and bringing them to life—and her role at Slant’d is no different. When she’s not amplifying Slant’d, she’s mentally resetting at yoga or on the rock wall, chasing squirrels with her pup Pepper in Central Park, or feasting at her favorite hole-in-the-wall spot.
Graphic designer by day and Slant'd's brand police by night, Yoko gravitates towards all things creative. From branding to web design to print and marketing, her fingerprints are on every visual aspect of Slant'd. When she's not designing, she enjoys spending time with her cat Mimi, collecting kitchen tools that have one job, cooking carbonara, and watching Ghibli movies.
