HI, I'M Katherine.


You can also call me Kate. I’m a writer. I create magazine and service journalism, and my work has appeared across national outlets including The New York Times, Business Insider, Architectural Digest, Real Simple, Rewire, Roadtrippers, Health, Well + Good, and Chegg, among others.


I am currently the associate digital features editor at Architectural Digest where I cover architecture + design, real estate, travel, and auto, among other topics. I graduated from The New School in New York City. A Hoosier at heart, I’m now based in Brooklyn.
