Intern Spotlight: Katie Saltkill

Katie Saltkill, a transfer student, is currently a senior at Missouri State University, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in the electronic arts program for audio engineering.

Katie says she is excited about working with Carbon Trace Productions because the work is impactful and provides the ability for her to grow as a person while developing necessary communication and hands-on skills for audio engineering and media production in general. She would like to record audio for musicians one day.

Katie’s passion for audio comes from how sound, or perhaps lack thereof, has such a strong and innate ability to bring a story to life or portray emotion. Katie enjoys audio work because it’s a way of expression and a chance to create something so immersive it may impact how others feel.

She is a self-proclaimed “very emotional and creative idiot” who loves learning, going on adventures, and being involved. Katie, in between projects, can be found working in her natural habitat: her room, with her cat, drinking diet coke, music in the background, daydreaming about the next big project.

You may know Katie as the host of the Carbon Trace Podcast. She has also worked on “Jack’s Big Idea,” “All of a Sudden,” and will have a video feature appear on our youtube page next month.
