Welcome! My name is Kat Richter and I’m a writer, dancer and professor of anthropology. I started writing Fieldwork in Stilettos in 2010 shortly after finishing my MA in Dance Anthropology. Given that said degree did not present the most obvious route to gainful employment, I found myself working retail, teaching, traveling, writing, directing a professional dance company, conducting a rather questionable “manthropological” experiment, purchasing my first home and pulling approximately sixty billion staples from the floor of said domicile.
I live in Philadelphia with my
boyfriend fiancé (!), PIC (aka Partner in Crime). Our hobbies include extreme Vitamixing, watching Jon Stewart and conspiring to steal other people’s dogs.
Thanks for stopping by and feel free to comment— I love a good debate!
