Katie Bailey

Katie Bailey (@katie_bailey) is the editor and content director at Playback. Following previous stints at sister Brunico publication Media in Canada and at Playback, she returned to Playback in 2013 to take on the content director role. She'd feel more guilty about the amount of TV she watches on a daily basis, but hey, it's work.
