Kate grew up and currently resides in Austin, TX. She spent much of her childhood visiting US National Parks with her family. She now has a Biology degree from the University of Texas and she jumps at the opportunity to use new photography skills to capture Central Texas' best kept secrets. She truly enjoys camping, hiking, swimming, fishing, and snowboarding when she gets the chance. She admires her grandfather who was the first to person to teach her how to shoot a rifle and continues to hunt deer and wild boar every year at almost 80 years old.
