As a young girl, Kate Nicholson wanted to grow up to be Stephen King. That was problematic because a) he's a guy and b) he already exists. So she settled for a more lyrical form of storytelling - with her camera. Her wise mother suggested she have a fall back plan, hence the degrees - a BA in Communications - Journalism from Loyola University and a MFA from Parsons New School for Design. Luckily she can still put both to work, many years after graduation.
She is based in San Francisco.
