  • Descripción

    Hi I'm Kat ! I'm an easy-going experienced traveler that loves to laugh and help others. I am currently in Paris though I am hoping to explore more of the beautiful French countryside.

    After returning from a year abroad with AFS Intercultura in Catania Sicily from 2009 to 2010, I've spent the last 9 years developing my career in architecture and graphic design. As much as I love design, sitting behind a screen 70+ hours a week didn't quite make me feel as alive and fulfilled as I do when I travel. In 2019 I finally decided to say goodbye to the office-life and enter the world in pursuit of new adventures, cultural immersion, and lasting international friendships.

    I love the outdoors, immersing myself in nature, and meeting people from all walks of life! I am on a journey to become location independent and discover new ways to apply my expertise and learn new skills to benefit people and animals of all kinds around the world and of course the well-being of our planet.

    I cannot wait to contribute to the many projects and opportunities of all varieties of the global workaway community!
