Hey, I’m Kate!

Hello! I'm Kate. Like all of you, I love to travel. Excluding layovers, I've been to 13 countries on three continents and 40 US states, for business and pleasure, and I have a lot of favorites (Beijing, Reykjavik, Alba, Bled, Cork, Louisville, Kona), and a lot of places still on my To Do list (too many to mention!). I'm a respectful tourist and want to absorb as much as I can from local cultures wherever I go. I love a good story, and I love a good card trick!

I grew up in Virginia and attended the University of Virginia (Wahoowa!), and I lived in Austin and New York City in my early 20s. I moved to Los Angeles for love in 2010, and good news, it worked out, we're married! I enjoy cooking elaborate dinners, taking long walks listening to "The Splendid Table" and "Wait Wait" podcasts, reading The New Yorker with a glass of California Chardonnay or Zin, playing fetch with our adorable adopted dog Lucy, seeing art whether in museums or parks, arranging flowers, and watching anything funny on TV.

I got my first job when I was 15, shelving books at my small Virginia hometown's public library, and I've worked in a variety of environments and roles since, from French bistros to film festivals, food writing to field hockey refereeing. I've enjoyed the adventures, and I thoroughly enjoy what I do now, as an event and residence manager at UCLA.

My husband and I are non-smoking, neat, and quiet.
