Rachel Murphy

I’m originally from Dublin, Ireland (and before you ask yes, I have an accent), but I found my way to Austin by way of New York City. I spent two years there completing a master’s in journalism at NYU, so it makes sense that I’m an in-house writer here at INK.

Before INK, I worked as a writer and editor in New York and Dublin. I’ve covered everything from fashion, travel, and whiskey to start-ups for a variety of publications including The Irish Times, Thrillist, Mass Appeal and Travel + Leisure.

Here at INK, I write a lot of things, but I also help out with editing, media relations and strategy. While I am happiest when I’m pulling my hair out over the use case of a particular verb, PR offers me the freedom to flex my creativity in other ways. I’m a people person too; so chatting to clients and the INK crew as opposed to my computer screen is good for my sanity.

When I’m not working, you can probably find me doing one of the following: cycling through the hill country, eating breakfast tacos, or relaxing on a patio with some friends. It’s not too difficult to find something fun to do and people to do it with in Austin. That’s why I don’t plan on leaving anytime soon.
