Keaton Peters grew up in a small town along the California-Nevada border, and he moved to Austin, Texas in 2019 after graduating from the University of California at Berkeley with a B.A. in Rhetoric. Throughout the past few years, he has been involved in political campaigns both locally and nationally, as well as independent online journalism before deciding that continued journalism education would benefit his career. Some topics of interest include science and technology, the environment and global affairs. When not working, writing, or biking to class, Keaton also enjoys meeting new people, playing guitar and producing music, playing basketball and spending time with his two cats.
