Hi, there! I’m Katie Q. and I ‘m a video journalist/host and a food enthusiast. I think there is a story to be told everywhere. I think food connects people.

I post a new video every week on my YouTube and Facebook channels, QKatie, which I launched in 2014. I love traveling, making food, eating food, and sharing those passions.

I’m @qkatie on Instagram if you want to see some sweet pics.instaposts

I’m frequently appear on NBC’s TODAY show and am a TODAY Tastemaker. I’ve been featured on The Meredith Vieira Show and The Food Network. I’m partnered with Tastemade and do travel and food series for them.

A bit about how I got here: After graduating from college in Ohio, I lept into the media industry as an NBC Page, then found my video groove by producing/shooting/editing videos for the TODAY show’s website, I wrote for the James Beard award-winning food website, Serious Eats, and was video host for the video news company NowThis. (If you want to hear more about how I found my way to food journalism, check out my interview on the podcast The Food Seen.)

My slogan is #keepitquirky because I love experimenting in the kitchen and, further, I think life is more fun if you don’t take yourself too seriously.

Additional random facts: I’ve been a music video heroine (and lip-syncer), a culinary student at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, I play guitar and I love hiking.


“I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money. I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious, in the belief that once that far down everyone will understand because they are the same as me, that far down.” -Jack Kerouac
