Katie Hickman

Age: 20. Hometown: Youngstown, Ohio. Currently resides: Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Occupation: Student at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Future occupation: Aspiring horror filmmaker, musician, and artist. Reason for moving to New York City: I always wanted to go to New York—I don’t know why that is. I just knew. Day job: Being goth. I only come out at night. Current project: I recently started making a very minimalist, silent, horror-inspired film-horror films should be less about storyline and more about aesthetics. Most terrifying person: I love him to death, but Lou Reed was pretty intimidating to talk to. I met him at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. He had so much attitude. Favorite fictional character: The main character of The Stranger, by Albert Camus. He has a different way of looking at things. The fact that everyone thinks he’s so unrelatable—I relate to that. Theme song: “New Egypt” by White Magic. Dream date: Anyone? This is a hard question. It’ll be funny if I say this. I’ll just say it: Vincent Gallo. -Lucy Madison
