About Me

Kristi Porter, photo credit Johna Castro 2I’m a Christian, creator, leader, writer, funny girl, abolitionist, multi-tasker, filmie, foodie, tree hugger, daydreamer, locavore-in-training, consultant, traveler, and entrepreneur, to name a few.

I’m also the founder and Chief Do-Gooder at Signify, where I help small nonprofits and for-profits with a social mission get noticed and grow through effective marketing and communications.

I also teach solopreneurs and small businesses how to incorporate cause marketing, philanthropy, and giving strategies so they can leverage their existing resources and influence to make a positive impact.

Essentially, I make cause-focused organizations look and sound more professional so they can build a larger audience, increase sales or donations, and do more good.

In my free time, I volunteer for an organization called Out of Darkness, which helps free women from prostitution and modern slavery.


Favorite shows: Arrested Development, Alias, Veronica Mars, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Bones, Castle, West Wing, Chuck, Modern Family, Psych, Fringe, and basically anything to do with spies.

Favorite quote: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Gandhi

  1. You’re fun.

  2. Your post on the gallbladder removal surgery was so
    Helpful! Had mine out today. Moving from sitting/laying is so hard. It was good to read that someone else had the same issues!!
