Disguised as a student, Kat spent her formative years at the University of Vermont, USA as a DJ and program director for WRUV 90.1 FM , mosh-pitter, road-tripper and proud employee of the Lawrence Debate Union. Somehow, she earned a BA in English and German as well as a teaching license along the way.
Bored after teaching German for one year, she left Vermont and headed to Switzerland in 1996, never to return home again.
In 1999, she took up writing for the Bangkok Post, Thailand (www.katswindow.net) and freelancing for the BBC. However, language related mysteries kept her awake at night, so she headed off to get a Masters Degree in Applied Linguistics at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia in 2002.
Using her new-found knowledge, she then went on to work in Burma, where disguised as a teacher, she focused on preserving the persecuted culture of the Mon people and figuring out how to create amazing meals with limited ingredients. In Mandalay, she met and fell in love with her cat, Chelsea. Kat then headed off to Korea to teach debate and eventually sought refuge back in Thailand in 2007, where working at an international school and listening to local bands including Carabao and Lao Cow on the weekends kept her more than busy.
In 2011, itchy feet and ears got the best of her and she headed off to Beijing, China. After discovering the local music scene, she’s sure to be hanging around for a while. Kat can usually be found near the front of the stage, towards the right, rocking out. She is currently writing for Music Dish China, teaching, and hanging out with Chelsea.
