Cyclist and Photographer
Brevard, North Carolina
At age 7, Kate successfully taught herself how to ride a bike.
“I’ve been an enthusiast biker from an early age that’s still inside of me today. I love the fastness, speed, and challenge of its enduringness in biking. Sometimes, I enjoy taking an adventure with my bike and explore what’s around me.”
Kate also enjoys photography and creating short films. “I enjoy seeing films on how they can be presented in various ways to tell a story. I think that’s very powerful.”
Why she’s excited to be on the jury
“At this year’s festival, I hope to see films with diverse backgrounds both on and off the screen. I also hope to see stories that will give me a perspective that I never get the opportunity to experience.”
