Hello! I am Kalina Jane Chen Silverman. I live in Santa Monica, California, and travel often. I am currently preparing to head to Singapore as a Fulbright Program Scholar. 

I care about telling stories and creating ideas that help build global understanding between people of different backgrounds. In seeing this vision through, I founded MIXED and BIG TALK.

I also work as a model and host in Los Angeles. During my time at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, I worked on documentary films in Ecuador and Germany. I am interested in collaborating with people on projects that bridge cultures through the use of education, art/music, and journalistic storytelling. 

During my free time I stay active (bikinghiking, dancing, swimming, rock climbing, practicing yoga, and playing tennis), adventurous, and creative (working in my art journal, singing/songwriting, and playing the piano).
