I'm Katie, and I enjoy climbing/hiking/kaya­king/camping/etc! I'm 27, have lived all over (most recently 3 mos in a tent in Madagascar), and look forward to settling in Austin.

Tell us a little more about yourself:

Hi I'm Katie, I just moved to Austin on Jan 1. I'm starting a new job as a postdoctoral researcher; I study chimpanzee behavior. As part of my career trajectory, I have lived all around the world studying primates, including San Diego, Barcelona, Uganda, Scotland, Atlanta, and most recently Madagascar. My current position is for 2 1/2 years so I am looking forward to making close friends and getting to know Austin, as well as exploring the areas within driving distance for weekend backpacking trips. I love rock climbing, hiking and backpacking, and have spent many months of my life living in a camping tent in the forests of Africa. I'm excited to join a new and vibrant community.

What would you like to explore?

I moved to Austin for a new job on Jan 1, so I am interested in exploring everything Austin has to offer! I would love to find some great rock climbing spots, different (and challenging) hikes, places where I can camp without hearing the generator next to someone's RV, and I am open to trying out new activities like paddleboarding. Basically if the sun is shining, I want to be outside enjoying it! Also, I'd love to get to know all the great restaurants, bars, and hangouts in Austin.

This group is for people between the ages of 21-40. Do you fall within this range?

27 is gonna be a great year for me :)

    Hey, Katie it was great to meet you too, had an amazing time thanks for organizing the hot tub. I had a look though all my stuff but couldn't find a charger sorry.
