Katie is a multidisciplinary documentary artist, an educator, and 2019-2020 Lewis Hine Documentary Fellow.
She holds an MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts from Duke University and a BA in English from The University of Georgia. Before and beyond that, she holds an abiding fascination with stories. Often, her work focuses on themes of family, communication, and mental health and spans film, photography, audio, web, and text-based mediums.
Katie has worked as an adjunct instructor for UNC-Chapel Hill’s Hussman School of Journalism and Media as well as Duke University's Information + Science Studies and Arts of the Moving Image programs. In these positions, she has taught a variety of storytelling-based courses ranging from Contemporary Documentary Film to Web-Based Multimedia Communications.
Her current research interests include how we navigate internal worlds, unpack intimate struggles, and talk to people—both others and ourselves.
She now lives in Durham, NC and Brooklyn, NY.
