Katie Allcorn is an artist and entrepreneur based in Smithville, Texas. Her work explores various mediums, from design and business to non-fiction writing and food. She has worked in both the dot com industry and the handmade world of Austin, where she gained experience in web design, user experience, stationery design, print production, and project management.
In 2012, Katie told stories of creative Austin business owners on Folklore Austin, an online magazine. Her research and writing for Folklore developed an itch to do more herself. In 2013, Katie and her husband quit their “good jobs”, moved to the sticks, and with no prior experience, they opened Neighbor’s, a restaurant and music venue on the Colorada River. She learned a lot fast – customer service, social media marketing, menu development, and private event coordination.
When not running around the restaurant, Katie can be found with her baby girl on her hip, laughing and writing about her wacky small town or sitting on a porch somewhere with her husband.
