About Katie

Dichotomous to the core: Intelligently Childlike....Charmingly Sarcastic...Whimsically Grounded....I am just one of the guys in the body of a punk rock pixie!

My love of acting and television began the moment I decided I wanted to be Red on “The Muppets.” Years later, the discovery of angsty teen dramas with their ability to be both relatable and poignantly envelope hopes, fears and dreams pinpointed exactly what I wished to creatively convey.

What followed was work in independent feature films, with an eventual evolution to voice-over artist, writer, and film producer. Currently, I am writing my first feature length coming-of-age dramedy What Happens in the Middle.

Additionally, the founding of SummerCamp Collective (bringing actors, writers, musicians, editors, graphic designers and filmmakers together to create and mentor one another) was the realization of a dream that there is room enough for everyone and we can build the creative world we dream of. The collective is currently in pre-production on Scions, a sci-fi drama.

I also moonlight as a gluten-free culinary baking genius and absolutely could be the drummer for Blink 182 (though I have no rhythm or skills or instrument).
