Director of Video Services and Production
Growing up with a camera in hand, it’s no surprise that Katy comfortably assumes her role as director of video services and production for 360 Filmworks, Stone Ward’s in-house video production arm. Wielding 16 years of experience, Katy and her team work with clients to create one-of-a-kind brand experiences through video storytelling
Over the years, Katy and her team have been recognized for creativity, technical excellence, and storytelling effectiveness by the national Telly awards and others, including a long list of Stone Ward clients who rely on Katy to lead their video projects. Whether it’s a 30-second prime time spot for Sport Clips, a rap for one of the agency’s employee engagement clients, or a fan activation multimedia experience for U.S. Women's Soccer, Katy makes sure that the quality rivals big name studio work without the bloated budgets and long production schedules.
Over the course of her career, Katy has gained valuable experience as an NBC producer, public relations account executive, writer and client champion, all integral to her approach to new projects. She likes to refer to her production team of directors, shooters, animators and editors as a Swiss Army Knife – capable of doing it all, whether that’s through impromptu resourcefulness or bringing in outside experts for additional perspective. Coordination and creative problem-solving come naturally to Katy, a skill set that’s necessary for delivering stunning results.
When she’s not traveling to shoots or jotting down notes whenever creativity strikes (she would say creativity can’t be scheduled, and we would agree), she’s cheering on her daughter’s softball team or her basketball team as head coach.
I played just about any sport you can think of growing up and I was an all conference softball player in high school

Don’t sweat the small stuff, pick your battles, and what’s done is done… sometimes you have to make mistakes to do it right the next time around.

1987 Bronco II with 187,000 miles on it… I only had that for a few months and then I upgraded to a Jeep Wrangler. I miss riding with the top down.

You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar…my grandmother has always said this and I’ve found it to be true in most situations. My granddad always says, “Keep up Production”, that’s pretty good advice too.
All my family members including grandparents I never really got to meet, Mickey Mantle so my dad could meet him, Mary from the Bible, and just about any country singer so we would have some good entertainment.
