Katie grew up in a number of cities across the east coast and moved to California in 2009 to study film at Biola University. She stumbled into her passion for film due to scheduling conflicts during her sophomore year of high school. Unable to grab a spot in Yearbook class, Katie settled for TV Production. It was the best, albeit unintentional, decision she ever made. Editing easily became Katie's favorite part of filmmaking, and she is honored to be a part the post team for Cicada. After graduating in the Spring of 2013, Katie returned to the university as a video editor.
