Before short form called, Kat spent a decade as a journalist and documentary filmmaker, launching her career as one of the youngest directors in MTV history when she lent her signature lens to the inaugural seasons of the blockbuster 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom series. Kat was invited to write about the experience for The Guardian after it was proven that the shows dramatically reduced the teen pregnancy rate. Kat became The Guardian’s first video journalist in America, creating and directing popular front page series covering everything from Noam Chomsky to the 2012 presidential primaries. The New York Times, The New Yorker, NPR, and The Washington Post were among the other outlets to commission Kat’s award-winning work.
