After graduating with an honors degree in computer science, Kristopher decided to pursue a career as a professional jazz musician, performing in several venues within the United States.

At age 23, Kristopher began touring internationally with alto saxophonist Kenny Garrett. Since then, he has traveled to every major jazz festival in the world touching six continents performing with artists including Christian Scott, Kamasi Washington, Sean Jones, Benny Golson, Keyon Harold, Bruce Williams, Nicholas Payton, Warren Wolf, Pharoah Sanders, Jeff Majors, Jeff Lorber and many others.
