About Katheryn McGaffigan

Katheryn McGaffigan was raised by her imagination in the depths and forests of New England and now lives in New York City as an actor, writer, musician and model. She performed around the world in the legendary 'gypsy punk' band Gogol Bordello, and she has appeared in several internationally-screened and award-winning independent and documentary films such as 'Adam' and 'Gogol Bordello Non-Stop'. Katheryn has appeared on television in the U.S.A., the U.K. and Japan in such series as 'Bored to Death' and 'Skins'. She is a model muse of several Brooklyn-based designers/labels including Brooklyn Industries, Lavai Maria and Umsteigen and her modeling work has been seen in Vogue Magazine.
Katheryn, a dual citizen of both the E.U. and the U.S.A., has travelled the world extensively by performing and/or selling merchandise for bands, studying abroad, volunteering, doing media alongside international auto rally races, creating her own cross-continent auto rally race ('Rally to the End of the World', NYC to Ushuaia, Argentina, Summer 2002) and just chasing the music. She holds her undergraduate degree in Creative Writing and Literature from Harvard University and continuously takes classes in acting, writing, yoga and all-things-personal transformation in NYC's incredibly diverse educational circuit. Katheryn is currently completing a poetry and prose collection, scheduled to be published in October 2012, and she is beginning preparations for the release of her second solo album.
