O hai! My name's Kat.
This site is a collection of my experiences as a storyteller and filmmaker for Mercy Ships. It's a portfolio/journey documentation hybrid so to speak. I get to use my love of creating to tell stories, solve problems, and make a difference along the way.
In the past I've worked as a Marketing Team Lead for a travel firm and a freelance photographer & videographer. I’m a graduate of the University of Miami with a double major in Electronic Media and International Studies.
Fill out the contact form to connect! Growing up in a Cuban family means I love coffee and food, so find me somewhere around the world and let’s grab some of that, too.
Where are you from?
I'm from sunny Miami, FL! I love the beach, copious amounts of vaca frita con moro y maduros, dominoes, and a long drive to the Keys and/or Orlando. Did I tell you I love Walt Disney World? Cause I love Walt Disney World. I also have an acute obsession with my dog Otis Walter; he's my biggest fan.
I'm currently in Cotonou, Benin for the next ten months! I get to document patient stories for a wonderful organization called Mercy Ships. We provide free specialized medical care to those in need through a hospital ship. Now...to freshen up on my French...
Where are you now?
I have a few bands on rotation. Right now, I'm pretty obsessed with On An On, Broods, Turnover, and Local Natives. Got any music recommendations? Shoot me a message. :)
