My name is Kathryn Casteel and I'm a South Carolina native now pursuing a journalism career in New York City. I'm currently a policy writer for FiveThirtyEight. I recently graduated from CUNY Graduate School of Journalism where I studied elements of data and visual storytelling and business and economic reporting.
In the past, I've covered business and real estate for Crain's New York Business, as well as local business and politics for the Mott Haven Herald in the Bronx. I've published work in Tech Cocktail, Queens Courier, and the Spartanburg Herald-Journal in South Carolina. I lived in Rome, Italy for four months during which I traveled around Europe. After immersing myself in a new culture, I developed a passion for telling unique and compelling stories about the world and its people.
