Kristyn Ulanday (b. 1987) is a photographer, director and visual storyteller currently based in the greater New York City area. She holds a bachelor's degree in Journalism from Boston University and a master's degree from the London School of Economics in Inequalities and Social Science. 

Her passion and insatiable curiosity has led her in search of stories that explore rich and diverse cultures around the world, with her work appearing in The New York TimesSports Illustrated, and on NBC News.com as well as across a variety of digital platforms for ZipCar, JetBlue, and EF-Education First.

As a storyteller, her goal is to create content that distills complex concepts like government policy, academic research, or cultural tradition into relatable and understandable materials that inform people about the impact - positive and negative - they may have on nature and humanity. To do so, she specializes in long-form, multi-platform storytelling with a focus on social justice and economic inequality.

Kristyn is available for assignments worldwide.
