About Katie

Voted most likely to succeed. Also voted most likely to kick someone in the balls and giggle.

An introverted optimist with a child-like warrior spirit I believe cake & the color yellow can brighten any moment, days without giggling should never happen, and curse words should be a prerequisite in any great conversation.

My love of acting and television began the moment I decided I wanted to be Red on “Fraggle Rock.” Later, the discovery of angsty teen dramas with their ability to poignantly envelope hopes, fears and dreams all to a kick-ass soundtrack, pinpointed exactly what I wished to creatively convey as an actress and writer.

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 second feature, the coming-of-age dramedy "Life Man", as well as working on a few short film ideas.

Additionally, the founding of SummerCamp Collective in NYC(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.

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

Unique traits: Childish abandon, ever-changing hair color and style, wrist tattoos, dreamer of dreams
