bio & contact


Katherine parker-magyar

I write about travel, lifestyle & culture for Forbes, Architectural Digest, The Week, Business Insider, TripSavvy, The Daily Beast, Tasting Table, Elite Daily, POPSUGAR, Electrify, Brit + Co, This Is Insider, Go Overseas, Quest Magazine, and theRecorder Newspapers, where I first began my career as a reporter.

When I was 14-months old, my parents took me to the Arctic Circle. Since then, I’ve visited all 50 states and nearly as many countries (48 and counting.) I’ve lived abroad in London and Osaka, but call New York City home.

A travel ambassador  for Pierce Hotels, Trill Travel, Club 1 Hotels, TravelCar and Hotel Reviews, I have been interviewed about my travels throughout Africa and Europe for publications, podcasts, and radio shows. My writing has been translated into French and Arabic and I’ve been profiled in the Huffington Post, Le Diplomate Tunisien and the Economist Maghreb about my reporting on the Barbary Coast. 

I earned my master’s degree summa cum laude with honors in creative writing at The New School, where I also studied literary criticism. I graduated cum laude with English honors from Hobart and William Smith Colleges, awarded for the most distinguished record in the humanities and future promise as a scholar and writer.

I love travel because I love meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. I truly believe that #travelislove and, to paraphrase Mark Twain, that it’s fatal for hatred, bigotry and narrow-mindedness. I’m thrilled to be working in an industry that is a force for good in the world.
