Katy Chen's Profile
A word about Katy Chen:
I am a freelance TV producer and an award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker. I have lived and worked in New York City, Dallas, Seattle, Washington D.C. and currently in a loft in downtown Los Angeles. I love dancing, dance, music, good food, trying new restaurants, art, fashion, style, design, architecture, yoga, pilates, holistic living, traveling, reading, writing, personal finance, magazines, baseball, interior decorating, poker, photography, people and cultures, documentaries, and studying love and relationships. If you're 70 or older or have been married for over 20 years, I am fascinated!

I'm a huge music snob. I know music is highly subjective so I will still be your friend even if I think your taste in music sucks. I pretty much like something in every genre of music, but the ones I like the most are: punk (pretty much all of it...from the beginning to even the more modern and mainstream), alt country (Old 97's, Robert Earl Keen), old country (like Hank Williams and Patsy Cline), swing, jazz, big band, anything Willie Nelson, Cole Porter, Jimi Hendrix, or the Cure, alternative rock/garage bands, disco and other really good dance music, certain classical like Strauss' waltzes, certain hip hop/rap like Lauren Hill, Black Eyed Peas, Far East Movement, Run DMC, Beastie Boys, lots of old school, and new school that understands old school, certain opera (mostly arias), classic rock like Dylan, Beatles, early Stones...and the list goes on and on...
