I'm Kate! You can call me Kate or Sie. I'm a twenty-two year-old New Jersey native, and no, I don't have a silly accent! I've been happily attached to my boyfriend, Drew, for more than three years now. I have worked as a restaurant server for some-odd years and I go to school full time at Union County College, and I am in pursuit of a Liberal Arts Associate in Applied Science degree.

I've been breathing computers and the internet since I got one for Christmas in 1999. I went to a tech-intensive high school (read more about that on my resume). I've also been doing webdesign pretty much since I started on the internet, if you can call the MIDI-laden, sparkly-GIF covered Geocities and Homestead sites I had as a young teenager "designed." I learned pretty quick, though, and ever since I was fiddling in a WYSIWYG page editor and figured out how to "code" a marquee in the manual editor I was obsessed with HTML code and learning how to make things on the internet. I've never been very good at programming, but... hey, I'm finally learning. :P

I am an artist and a writer, too—most of my art and my writing centers around 'Souls, a play-by-post roleplaying game that I have been intermittently involved with for nearly a decade now. Post-apocalyptic werewolf roleplayers represent, yo. :D I do have a lot of creativity, though, and not everything I do is relevant to 'Souls, though sometimes it'd seem that way. :P
