Katie McGowan is an active digester, consumer, regurgitater, and sometimes producer of multi-media. While carefully navigating both the virtual and real world around her, she aims to one day put a small stake in the ground after continuous exploration, in order to achieve and project her simplistic worldview – that people are inherently good, life is a beautiful and often hilarious thing, and love transcends natures and egos.  She is currently seeking an M.A. in Media Studies at the New School and promises not to speak in the third person – in person.  Her interests in Media Studies include – new media and “vlogging”, media policy reform movements, gender representation in media, new media exhibition methods in public spaces, and media management philosophy and methods.
