About Katie S.

I’m a 25-year old arts and culture nut who loves animals, grammar, live music, farmer’s markets, hysterically bad movies, anything that smells like pumpkin, shoes and Chipotle.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego day?

I’d start my day with a breakfast burrito and a morning run on the beach at Fiesta Island with my dog.  Then I’d bring a picnic lunch to the Japanese Friendship Garden, and end my day rocking out at a concert.

If you were invisible, where would you go?

The Chargers locker room.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

I love shopping at the kitschy stores in Hillcrest and finding great deals at the outlet malls. Shopping is an outdoor activity, right?

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

I’m a vegetarian, so I’d have to say veggie burgers and beer. My favorite is the veggie burgers at the Wild Note Café that are made fresh with hummus.

Latest music purchases for my iPod/MP3 player are…



  • Easy Star All-Stars “With A Little Help From My Friends”



  • Fleet Foxes “White Winter Hymnal”



  • Franz Ferdinand “Ulysses”



  • DeVotchka “How It Ends”
