Katharine “Kat” Andriotis is a semi-retired on-location corporate photographer. She has photographed thousands of people in the many years she’s been in business (from CEOs and factory line workers to politicians, athletes, and more) in many locations throughout the United States and worldwide.
Having freed up more time in her life, Kat joined The LOFT staff in March 2015. She is committed to advancing LGBT causes and building community at our center, drawing on her experience as a creative professional and business owner toward those goals.
Kat has a long history with the center. “I started going to The LOFT when it was actually located in a loft,” she reminisces. Not long after becoming a member, Kat was elected to the LOFT Board. During her tenure she served on many committees, plus she created and produced The LOFT-funded public access TV show “Forward & Out” (click on show title to view the show's clip reel). In 1994, The LOFT awarded Kat one of the first Pride Achievement Awards for her work on the show. Along with her staff position, Kat also continues to volunteer her time and resources to The LOFT.
Kat is a native New Yorker, proudly born and raised in The Bronx. She is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts (BFA, Photography 1982) in NYC, and lives in White Plains with her wife Laura and their sweet little dog Bobo.
