Katie Lee Echols Moore a.k.a. KLM

Where did you grow up?
With a little brother, two hippie parents, and 30+ bikes between all of us in Minneapolis, MN.

Interests? Hobbies? Do you even have any?
First and foremost: FUN, and having fun with my favorite people. Beyond that: digging for records, skeletons, breakfast food, new wave and industrial music, thrifting, beer, photography, traveling to new places, naps, tacos, bike camping, and some other stuff I probably forgot because I was so busy with my other interests and hobbies.

Who do you think you are, anyway?
I am not normal, I know that much – but who is?

Top ten factoids about you that even your co-workers may not know. Go.

  1. I taught myself how to read by sitting alone under a tree and staring at a book until I figured out what it said.
  2. I can speak Japanese and Chinese when I remember how.
  3. I lived in Portland before it was cool.
  4. I don’t wear high heels anymore because I think they are stupid and they pinch my feet like a lobster.
  5. My home counts among its treasures an astonishing collection of troll dolls.
  6. Is my lucky number.
  7. I’m no thief but I once got tricked into stealing an entire package of Amazin’ Fruit Gummy Bears from my kitchen for another child and to this day I live with the guilt. To boot I only got to eat like 2 of the bears.
  8. My favorite colors are black, red, and purple, like a really nasty bruise
  9. I have a fake front tooth from an unfortunate bike accident. Sadly it is not gold at this time.
  10. I can play the flute and the piccolo should you ever need jazzy tunes for any of your corporate events.

Who or what influences your behavior and why?
What I have been through in my life has shaped so much of who I am… as in I am now pretty darn stubborn about not being hateful, negative and closed-minded. Those types of people and attitudes made me think I was wrong for being myself, when in fact I am cool weird and I think that’s awesome.
I also wasted a lot of years of my life being pissed off about circumstances I could have changed on my own and that was pretty stupid, but it was a good learning experience on what not to do. I try to share this perspective with others and learn from them as well. Is that too crunchy?

What would you say your job is around here?
Typing up novels in response to your tech questions, answering the phone, and sending out care packages. I also offer smiles, dreams and rainbows but those are pretty rare so don’t get your hopes up.

One sentence to say what you want to. Go.
A large cheese pizza, just for me.
