Kristen is a Vermont born, Chicago dwelling self-described culture vulture. She owns an events production company called No Small Plans Productions, teaches about PR and Collaborative Consumerism (airbnb!) and marketing at Columbia College Chicago, and produces documentary films and events on her own time. Many would describe her as enthusiastic, entertaining, passionate, creative, kind, and maybe a little kooky. She's mad about baking, thrifting & creative style, and Mary J. Blige. She has a very busy lifestyle but treats Sunday as a day to brunch, read the NYTimes, bake, host friends, and wear clogs.
Mollie was raised in small town in the middle of Illinois farmland. She greatly enjoys nature adventures, framily (friends + family), staying active, sharing meals, & hanging out on the farm with mom, dad, and the dogs. She works in TV and film production, working as one of only two women in Chicago's camera union. (!) When she's not operating a camera, she dabbles in woodworking and tending to her growing plant collection. She also likes to ride her vintage motorbike, race cyclocross, hike, get crafty, garden, and share good food and beverage. She prefers the balance of calm-to-crazy and is commonly found chilling on the porch, reading, laughing, and tinkering around.
Together, we truly love building community around travel, friendships, swapping/trading, and joy. We do not get down with negativity, or racism/sexism/classism/ageism/homophobia/transphobia or anything that promotes harming or hating others. We live to love and love to live & welcome you to join.
We operate on respect, trust and will go the extra mile to help you enjoy our great city of Chicago. We can be low key or provide the best-kept secrets to Chicago - just ask!
