Name: Kate Keyt
Title: Brand Director at the Customizable Jewelry Company, Origami Owl
Married/Single: Engaged and soon to be married in May of this year.
Kids: Someday soon…
City you live in: Phoenix
A typical day in my life includes… hitting the snooze button repeatedly, snuggling, stopping by Luci’s before work, playing with jewelry and designing all day whether it’s for a catalog, seasonal campaign. Unwinding after work with a candlelight yoga or spin class. And spending quality time with my fiancée.
I was born…in the hottest month in Phoenix…August! Which makes me a Leo.
My favorite thing about Arizona… is the sky. There’s something about the blue in spring that makes me exceptionally happy. And then there’s those watercolor sunsets that take my breath away. I want to be outside, always.
I’m listening to… The Paper Kites, “Electric Indigo” off of their TwelveFour album is on repeat. “Heatwave (Filous Remix)” by Hollow Coves also on repeat. I’m OBSESSED with music. I have a playlist on Spotify for every mood and for every hour of the day.
My family… is what I treasure most in life.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… my Fiancée, Brandon and my Grandfather.
One thing I cannot live without… my phone. It’s like an extension of my body.
When I was younger, I wanted to be… an Iditarod Racer, a Zoologist, Paula Abdul, and a Mom.
I’m inspired by… God, the beauty of the earth, the Universe, LOVE, music, and highly vibrational people
The one person who motivates me is… My Fiancée Brandon. He pushes me every day to be better than the last.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… to overpower darkness with light, love and freedom.
The perfect day would be… sleeping in and snuggling. Grabbing a delicious brunch. And then hitting the road for an adventure under the sunshine.
My first job was… a lifeguard and certified swim instructor.
My favorite escape… is somewhere sparkly on the Amalfi Coast.
My life… is transformative and inspired.
I’m currently working on… a seasonal Summer catalog for Origami Owl…and wedding plans!
Always… say your prayers.
Never… give up.
Favorite Quote… “Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.” – Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
Biggest Dream… travel the world for a living
My Pet Peeve(s)… rude people and poor customer service!
