SAM CHRISTENSEN STUDIOS
"A natural. You're going to be a star. For sure."
“Most actors can’t create an individual character. But Kaira IS one.”
EMMY AWARD WINNING
"I discovered her page on Instagram and thought — very nice. Her posts are carefully curated, a mix of style, thought and a peek into her life. They are ... well, her. Kaira was immediately a friend in my head. Read a blog post or her reply to your social media comments and you'll feel like you've known her all along."
KATRICE L. MINES
EDITOR & BLOGGER
"When Kaira says she has talent we should meet, I’m instantly interested. Her instincts for both talent and concepts that fit their abilities are spot on. Beyond that, she understands the market and the importance of “flexible concepts” that can bend to fit different distribution channels yet stay within the expertise and abilities of the talent she’s developing.
When it comes to developing sizzles and concept materials, Kaira is imaginative and savvy. The work we’ve done with her is some of our best and we always look forward to an opportunity to work with her again."
PICTURE WINDOW PRODUCTIONS
"Kaira has worked with me on sharing my “true and authentic” self, which directly resulted in my sparkle on Project Runway S9 and Project Runway All Stars S6. Kaira has a way with people that makes them comfortable and brings out the best in them."
FASHION DESIGNER / TV PERSONALITY
"Kaira has a great knack for identifying the weak areas of a story. Her input never fails to take my work to another level."
“To know Kaira is to be completely charmed by her. Not only is she a savvy business woman, Kaira has the vision of a creative and the drive a go-getter. A truly chic and rebellious woman determined to create a space for herself.”
SUPPORT IS SEXY PODCAST
“Kaira captivates a room the moment she sets foot in it. Among the many things I adore is her willingness to be vulnerable as a storyteller, her desire to serve her community, and her love for art & humanity. Kaira is a gift to this world.”
SHE TAKES THE STAGE
"I saw Kaira on TV and I said, she's a star. I'm going to work with her one day."
