My name is Kate. I am currently pursuing my master's degree in journalism at the University of Texas. I graduated from Brown University with a BA in English in 2015. Immediately following my graduation, I moved to New York City to be a fellow at Quartz through the Atlantic Media Fellowship program. After a year at Quartz, I decided to move back home to Texas to report on state politics and policy issues. I began interning at Austin's NPR station, KUT, in August 2016 and was offered a paid part-time reporter position in January 2017. I left KUT in July 2017 to spend some time in Mexico learning Spanish before starting graduate school.
Today, I cover local politics and culture. If you need someone to do a piece about or in Austin, please get in touch!
