Kat Lazo is a director, producer and host. The Colombian-Peruvian New Yorker has made a name for herself as the Internets favorite no-nonsense Latina who tells it how it is - in front and behind the camera.

She transitioned her popularity as a YouTuber into a thriving career as a video producer. With more than 7 years of digital video production experience, her work has been featured in The Daily News, Huffpost, Latina Magazine and Buzzfeed just to name a few. And as a host Kat has worked and partnered with the likes of U by Kotex, Thrillist and Bustle.

In 2015 she started her own YouTube channel, TheeKatsMeoww, tackling social issues through humor and a lot of attitude. Her videos have been featured by Buzzfeed, Upworthy and Latina Magazine just to name a few.

She transitioned that popularity and her self education in video production into a thriving career as a video producer and eventually caught the eye of the Latino digital platform Mitú.

As a video producer for Mitú, she's most known for her series - "The Kat Call". She developed and hosted The Kat Call series, where she debunked taboos and misconceptions about the Latino community. Within 3 seasons the series has garnered over 15 million views. Recently, she's worked as an associate producer on a Universal and Mass Appeal documentary about Reggaetón. She’s also hosted the Thrillist original travel series Barrio USA, exploring "the vibrant world of Latinx culture all over America.”
