Kitty Barran




Social Manager.


Kitty Barran spent much of her 20-year communications career fielding questions from inquiring reporters as the head of the media relations departments at Farmers Insurance Group in Los Angeles and Zurich Financial Services in London.

A move to the Pacific Northwest prompted her to take the parts of those disciplines she enjoys most and does best – writing, photography and social media - and turn them into social and civic opportunities. 

Barran graduated from Wichita State University with a BA in journalism. She has served as pro-bono director of development for since its launch in 2009. 

The Story of your Ink

A tattoo is one of the most intimate – yet public – ways we express ourselves. Behind every deliberate ink splatter is a story. A reason for its very existence. Your tattoo has a story. Let’s hear it. 

Everyday people with exceptional stories.

Everyday, we meet people who make our communities tick, but we rarely get to know the individuals who make our own lives better through the work they do. is about the people who work in our neighborhoods, our schools and the businesses on the block.   

Pictures with Purpose

I believe that what goes around comes around. I offer photography services for non-profits who can’t afford a professional photographer. It is meaningful to me and appreciated by the organizations whose money can go toward more services.
