Hey, I'm Katie!
San Francisco, California
My name is Katie and I'm a director, writer and producer of To the Land, a documentary about who gets to call themselves a farmer and grow the food we eat in America today. To the Land follows Brisa Ranch, a small organic farm founded by three friends in Pescadero, California. We began filming in fall of 2020, after the pandemic and a massive wildfire put everything at risk for the fledgling farm. But Cristóbal, Veró, and Cole are resilient, hopeful, and passionate people who face every challenge as an opportunity to grow their team and their farm.
I have a background in film and theatre and have spent the last decade hopping between San Francisco and New York City, creating videos for educational institutions, tech companies, and impact-minded organizations with causes I care about. I'm also a writer, and my work has received recognition at the Austin Film Festival, Tribeca, the Sundance Episodic competition, and most recently- I was Stowe Story Lab participant in August 2021.
