Kat grew up in Hilo, Hawai'i—a small, beautiful town that has three-to-four restaurant openings a year, max. She now lives in Los Angeles, where she fills her time with marveling at the wonder of flight, listening to podcasts, applying for Mensa, getting rejected from Mensa, and collecting Instagram usernames like @pasadenababe, @secretlysourcednoodles, and @erewhonsilverlake.
