About Katie...
I am trained as theater technical who specialized in Technical Director - building scenery for theater productions starting from when I graduated from the University of Arizona with a BFA in Theater Production Design and Technology, emphasizing in Scene Design and Technical Direction. I worked as a carpenter and welder for Trinity Repertory Company in Providence, RI before moving to New York City to work as a freelance carpenter and Technical Director for theater. I was the Technical Director for Rattlestick Playwrights Theater during Adam Rapp's Hallyway Trilogy, which earned New York Times' Most Thrilling Theater Transformation (Brick-and-Mortar Variety) for 2011. I was then hired as the Associate Technical Director for Graduate Theatrical Production at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.
While working full-time at NYU, I earned my masters at the Interactive Telecommunications Program where I learned more about emerging technologies and the possibilities of combining my love of unique and specialty fabrication in different ways outside of the theater world.
Now, I aim to apply my knowledge of planning, budgeting, and creative problem to the world beyond theater. Working to find design solutions to different problems and areas in the world beyond.
