    Shot, edited, and produced. MISSADVENTURES is an all-girls travel show crew from Toronto. Unlike most travel shows, we don’t pack up and leave for months or years. We want to make traveling accessible and doable for girls our age who have full-time jobs and limited budgets. We want to urge them to skip the all-inclusive beach vacation and travel to more exotic places. We do it with humour and style, but still provide valuable tips along the way.

About Kat

I create, design, and shoot things.

Hi, I’m Kat! I’m a twenty-something year old hanging out in Toronto. I graduated from Ryerson University’s Image Arts Film program and I’m currently a freelance video producer doing everything from corporate videos to shooting a travel show (it’s called MISSADVENTURES, you should check it out).

I like… movies, advertising, burritos, pad thai, puns, Settlers of Catan, throwing plans out the window, and anything with an Apple logo.
