About J. Kat Loren

Who is J. Kat Loren?

J Kat is crazi about living life to the fullest. An award winning journalist, a global wanderer, travel journalist, and author, she graduated from the University of Washington with a BA in Editorial Journalism and from Seattle Pacific University with a M.S. in Marriage & Family Therapy. She has worked as a news and feature reporter, editor, and in marketing / public affairs. Currently, she authors Crazi Culture articles, writes for a variety of travel magazines, and continues to explore her passions of wine and pearls, destination travel and wellness resorts.

What photo equipment does she use?

A Canon EOS 70D with a 18-135 lens usually stuck on for optimal last-minute range, Rode mic and lapel mic for interviews, mostly natural lighting, a GoPro Hero 4 Silver, and post-processing on a MacBook Air laptop in Lightroom, Photoshop, Go Pro Studio, iMovie, and other video programs. All very prêt à partir.

Where does she live?

On an island in the Salish Sea…far away from you and me. (Sounds like a song, huh?)

How do I contact her? 

Email is best –
