I'm Katie, a ragamuffin born and bred amidst the cornfields of rural Iowa. I grew up alongside my mom in the kitchen and consider food to be one of my greatest passions. I love writing about, photographing, reading about and sharing food. Now I live in the big city and I love to explore all the tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurants that sometimes become hidden gems. I listened to NPR before it was cool, like to take bubble baths on rainy days and am strangely fond of canned peas.



ArtCenter College of Design, Pasadena, CA, US, Art Center Student Government Secretary

I organize the meetings, take minutes and keep the large group on track so that we can get everything done. We plan events for students, sit on committees and attend events as the student voice. It's a fun and interesting position in which every week poses new challenges and exciting solutions.

ArtCenter College of Design, Pasadena, CA, US, Tour Guide

I lead groups of prospective students and interested parties on tours of the student gallery and the school. I must be both informative and entertaining on these so as to answer any and all questions while making sure no one is secretly checking their instagram feed.
