Katie is a theatre director, arts educator, performer, and writer from Minneapolis, Minnesota. In May 2017, she graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre Performance with concentrations in acting, directing, and songwriting from The Boston Conservatory. Her work as a director relishes in theatricality, accentuates the materiality and effects of confines and perimeters, and experiments with the roles of both the actor and audience member in relation to these boundaries.
Katie is the founder and artistic director of Pale Blue Dot Theatre Company, a zero-waste, ecofeminist company dedicated to crafting and promoting theatrical works that produce little to no waste while sharing narratives that engage, educate, and encourage audiences to take action towards creating positive environmental change. Pale Blue Dot directing credits include: Mother by Chantal Bilodeau,Wave by Ida Esmaeili, Finale by Kendra Fanconi, Triflesby Susan Glaspell, and Lungs by Duncan Macmillan. Most recently through Pale Blue Dot, she wrote and directed Roots, a theatrical dance-poetry film based on Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree.
