Born and raised in downtown New York City, Katrina jokes she is a "Slo-Asian." Her mother is a Slovenian painter and her father is a Japanese producer and she is a first generation American storyteller. Katrina believes that her job is to live out the tragicomedy of human experience in front of people to help them make sense of, or escape, their own lives. As a kid studying Alexander Technique and iambic pentameter, Katrina began to feel she was more comfortable being herself on stage than off, and has been acting ever since. She's passionate about creating authentic leading roles for women of color. Dear universe, may she play: a brilliant political journalist in a Shonda Rhimes show, a dry humored computer programmer who outsmarts all the man-boys in a Mike Judge show, a closeted lesbian housewife in a Todd Haynes film, and a lovable curmudgeon lawyer in her own show.
