Hi everyone! My name is Katie Leeds and I’m from Haworth, NJ. I graduated from Syracuse University and am absolutely obsessed with it. Go orange! While my background is in Psychology and Child and Family Studies, music is something that I have always been passionate about. It’s in my blood. Some of my earliest memories are being backstage at concerts with my parents. Once I decided it was time to get an internship over the summer while in college, there was no doubt in my mind that it had to be in the Music Industry. I interned in the Publicity department at Universal Republic Records and from the very first day knew that this was what my career had to be. After graduating, I was a Marketing and Media Assistant at Sony Masterworks. Now, here I am at The Orchard! I am SO excited to be here and I am VERY excited about working with and learning from all of the amazing and talented people here.
Now for some fun facts about me: I love sushi, it’s my favorite food! I am amazing at Jewish geography (ex: Oh, you’re from/you went to/you worked at A? Do you know X, Y, and Z?) and if I could I would put it under special skills on my resume! Purple is my favorite color! Friends is my favorite show ever, I am a complete fanatic and have watched the entire series consecutively more than once! I sneeze in multiples, generally around 5! I am very upbeat, optimistic, and outgoing! I am a pop culture and social media junkie! I am addicted to nailpolish, I change my nail color at least twice a week! And last but most certainly not least, music is my life (duh)!
