“Hey, it’s Reece again!” Although today I work on an Emmy-Award winning TV show and live in Manhattan, only several months ago I had graduated college with no job and no clue what my future would look like. So, like every other unemployed 22 year-old stuck at home, I began making TikToks! My one true passion in life is story-telling, so I decided to start telling stories through the videos I made on TikTok, and when I finally landed my first TV gig in July, I combined the two! Now, I document my life working in the entertainment industry, living in NYC, and I also create/share fun and wholesome content I think people might enjoy! I never would’ve thought I’d gain a following on TikTok, but I genuinely smile everyday knowing how wonderful and supportive all of my followers on the app have been and continue to be.


I'm Kris Collins and I was a hairdresser/lash technician before the pandemic started.

Since joining in April I have gained 15 million followers and I'm having so much fun creating content. I am a full-time creator now on several platforms, and I never thought any of this would happen.
