"Everything about Krissy Vanderwarker's production of Sigrid Gilmer's twisted sci-fi comedy is wonderful and extreme."

-Jack Helbig, The Reader

Storytelling runs in my blood. My Aquarian nature pulls me towards helping people find the perfect articulation of their unique offering.


For the last 14 years, I developed brand strategies and stories for many different kinds of clients - from large national nonprofits to tech start-ups.


For me, crafting stories and innovative programs originated in my adventures in theater, as an accomplished director working nationally for companies such as Lookingglass, Second Stage, Actors Theatre of Louisville and the two award-winning companies I founded - Dog & Pony Theatre Co. and Sit & Spin Productions. 

And I'm pretty much always thinking of my dog, Lady Pony.


Learn how my storytelling and coaching skills can help you.



Dog & Pony Theatre Company is a nonprofit theatre company that I founded with Devon de Mayo in 2003.

I developed and teach a class about writing, performing and applied storytelling. We cover storytelling techniques and how they can be used as effective business tools - in marketing, change management, corporate culture, diversity and inclusion training and personal branding.


I'm an Adjunct Professor at The Theatre School at DePaul University, Northwestern University & Columbia College.



I've worked in Branding, Naming, Storytelling, Identity and Package Design for the last 14 years, with such companies as: YMCA of the USA, Ingenuity, Solo, Amway, Kohler, Sony, ConAgra, The Home Depot.
