I'm Katharine Clark Gray - I go by Katie. I'm a writer, producer, and story editor hailing from Central New York (go Orange), and one-half of the early-stage creative development firm Uncompromised Creative. I'm looking for freelance work in creative development, writing, story editing, and reporting for podcasts of all varieties and budgets. I gravitate towards stories about good people who do bad things… and the inverse.
As a longtime senior writer for the podcast Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman, I won multiple Webby and Signal Awards for audio storytelling (including wins for episodes with Barack Obama, JJ Abrams, Stacey Abrams, and Tyra Banks, and fresh nods in 2023 for episodes with Daymond John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and others). I've also been a contributing writer and editor to the Spark and Fire podcast, Meditative Story, and Should This Exist?; a guest writer/performer for the fiction noir podcast Fathom; and senior producer for The Come Up with Cassie Freeman (Aunt Viv, Bel Air).
My pre-audio life was as a playwright and filmmaker. Writing credits include The Paper Store with Penn Badgley, the cyber-thriller User 927 (winner, Next Generation New Play Contest), and the adaptation of the acclaimed memoir Now Everyone Will Know. I earned a Pew Fellowship in Playwriting, was an inaugural member of Interact Theatre’s Core Writers, whose other notable alums include James Ijames (Fat Ham on B’way), and the LAByrinth Theatre Co.’s Intensive Ensemble. Invitee, Lark Theatre Co.’s Playwrights’ Week (RIP).
For years, I worked with incarcerated persons as an instructor and artist-in-residence for restorative justice programs, and I would love to do more work in this vein.
Current projects include developing the independent podcast DO OVER (watch this space) and adapting my doomed relationship play Two Front Teeth (finalist, NNPN conference) for fiction audio. I live in Astoria with my creative partner Nicholas Gray, an actress daughter, and a very loyal 15-year-old catte dog.
What do politics and entrepreneurship have in common? Both require the courage to seize once-in-a-lifetime windows of opportunity. Few have better demonstrated that ability than President Barack Obama-- who sits down with Reid Hoffman in Part 1 of this two-part episode on finding the right moment to act, and when the moment chooses you.
