Kirsten Golden

Production Director

Kirsten believes in magic. And by magic, we mean the creation of something from nothing—whether it’s an artful editorial spread or a meticulously crafted meal. And it’s not just the outcome that she finds fascinating; it’s the forming of a battle plan and the steering of the creative ship. That’s what makes Kirsten, or Kiki as she’s known around here, such an effective production manager: details are her raison d’être. A Portland native, she is a fervent globetrotter, a living organ donor (!), and, to no one’s surprise, a very talented and passionate chef.
