Community Media. History. Cemeteries.
Stories bring it all together.
Hi! I'm Katie. I'm a Fulbright - National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellow, currently conducting research in England and Singapore for my Death in the Digital Age podcast and multimedia project. I am a cemetery researcher, public historian, audio storyteller, and writer who has partnered with clients like American Public Media, National Geographic, the Fulbright Program, Atlas Obscura, the Association of Minnesota Public and Educational Radio Stations, KFAI-FM, and many more. Previously, I developed all historical content (including self-guided audio tours for mobile), initiated community outreach via public programs, and managed social media assets for Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis. I have operated a free tenants' rights hotline, established a high school radio class and broadcast program, worked a wrench at a community bike shop, and assisted with operations at multiple low-power FM stations nationwide. From creating 90 second audio stories featuring adults with disabilities to writing 30+ page academic papers on turn-of-the-century amusement parks, I dedicate myself fully to the job at hand. I am a curious and practically minded dreamer with an eager enthusiasm for learning and doing.
