Kalista served for 12 months in the Yukon as a supplies quartermaster to the Second Cohort of the Canadian Electrohouse DJ Funk Force, until she got tired of replacing equipment because nobody listened to her advice on wearing toques overtop their headphones. Everything froze and she skipped town via a dogsled. She claims that’s the most interesting thing that has happened to her, but her informed and wise opinions tell us otherwise.
