ninety seven films

My name is Katie Simopoulos. I have a greek last name. Pizza is my favorite food. I love to wear hats. I love watching hockey, the Maple Leafs are my favorite team. I have a 3 year old puppy, Kallie. She’s a Beagle and Australian Shepherd mix. My favorite actor is Harrison Ford…love him in Six Days, Seven Nights. I love watching my stories…Friends, Golden Girls, The Closer, and One Tree Hill. My favorite bands are Third Eye Blind, Fall Out Boy, and The BareNaked Ladies. I love to travel, my dream vacation is a month (or two) in Greece. I love running, although my limit is a half marathon (13.1 miles).

My love for filmmaking started in high school after taking an Intro to Filmmaking class. My inspiration comes from watching the classic films starring Cary Grant, Marilyn Monroe, John Wayne, and Jimmy Stewart.

I grew up in a family where the video camera was always recording. The big moments were captured...first steps, birthdays, Christmas morning. The little moments were captured too...playing in the backyard, sitting around a campfire, watching the rain puddles fill up.
