Hi, I’m Katie Sciortino Peak

multimedia storyteller | artist | entrepreneur | human

Ever-evolving; figuring it out as I go (aren’t we all?)


I’m a big believeR


in following curiosity.  For the past 10+ years, I’ve been following my own trail of creative breadcrumbs which has taken me from the page to the stage to the screen.  I’ve written, illustrated, rhymed, designed, painted, performed and produced.

It is my intention to fill my own space, mind, and heart with words that keep me focused on what is essential, and I desire to create and share products and stories that will hopefully help others do the same.  

In 2017, with help from a team of brilliant, creative women, I produced a video of my spoken word piece "Heart & Soul Sister," a battle cry for courage and authenticity, and “The Make Manifesto.”

I launched the Katie Peak & Co. Shop to provide a tangible way for others to connect with the poetry and stories I’m sharing, such as the fan favorite “The Acorn & The Tree"  and “Giggles and Grace. “

I'm currently working on producing an original podcast musical called “Will You?” MORE ON THIS SOON!


FORMAL third-person BIO:

Katie feels very fancy about this

Katie has a Masters in Journalism from Northwestern University with a concentration on video storytelling and degrees in Public Relations and International Affairs and a minor in Spanish from The University of Georgia. She worked as an Associate Producer of “Oprah: Where Are They Now,” a Story Producer for History Channel’s “Great Lake Warriors,” and as an Associate producer for the documentary “Remember Me Sue.” Katie self published her short story “The Light Guardian” and a digital version of my picture book “The Thanksgiving Feather.”  She’s also worked with the National World War II Museum’s Stage Door Canteen Theater and with New Orleans’ independent film studio, Second Line Stages. She’s currently living in New Orleans with her husband Richie and their dog Dory.


I believe words and stories carry a special kind of magic to spark healing & connection and to speak beauty & joy into our lives. I think simplicity is something to celebrate.
