Katie is an actor, model, and improviser, hailing from the back roads of rural Washington. She started acting at the age of seven when she landed the role of lead jumping bean in a traveling Missoula Children’s theater production of Jack and the Beanstalk. Since that harrowing day she has gone on to follow her passion for playing the strangely comedic yet important role in movies, plays, and commercials. Katie has been described as “an American version of Canadian Fringe Artist; friendly, funny, and never says quite what you expect.” Primarily based in Portland, Oregon, she spends a majority of her time performing improv and sketch comedy for Curious Comedy Theater and with her two woman improv group KATIE. Recent credits include Portlandia (IFC), Sidekicks (Action Adventure Theatre), and Waterman the Musical (Action Adventure Theatre).
