My name is Kat and I am a freelance multimedia journalist based in Kentucky. Inspired by photojournalism pioneers such as Robert Capa, W. Eugene Smith and Kevin Carter, I pursued a degree in photography and, later, another degree in journalism at California State University, Northridge.
I have worked in multiple countries including Turkey, Israel, Guatemala, Czech Republic, Hungary, Germany, France, Indonesia, Nepal, The Netherlands, Italy, Mexico, and Japan. I am available for assignments covering social, political, and global issues anywhere in the world.
My work is geared mainly towards activism and documentary photography and multimedia production, coupled with written articles. As a journalist, I am interested in the power that photography and video can have on social consciousness as a whole. My goal is to use my multimedia skills to document the lives of those who suffer from disease, poverty, war, discrimination, violence, etc. I aim to produce multifaceted work that endeavors to tell in depth stories, bringing to light various social and global issues while capturing their impact on the human element.
My hope is to inspire others to take action and push for change. Maybe I’m an idealist, perhaps I’m naive, but I believe that the world would be a better place if everyone just cared a little more.
“Be the change that you want to see in the world.”
Peace and Love
