Flywheel Creative’s lead writer Kristen Card, as you might guess, made up her own title. Truly, Kristen is an instinctive storyteller, and loves nothing better than crafting the telling of a story so that it moves people – to laughter, to tears, to action.
Kristen’s past professional lives include stints covering Florida politics for public radio, flacking for Texas’ petrochemical industry, and spinning plates while riding unicycles [i.e., helping create corporate campaigns] for an international public-affairs firm. She is a longtime reader of The Austin Chronicle, but has never been paid for it.
Today, Kristen specializes in helping a broad spectrum of clientele fall in love with their marketing – and helping their audiences fall in love with them. She believes story is how we create connection, and connection – not the Hokey-Pokey – is what it’s all about [not that the Hokey-Pokey isn’t a hoot]. She spends her copious free time hanging and jamming with her husband, two kids and three spotty dogs.
