Hey, I'm Catherine!

St. Louis, Missouri

I am an actor/writer/director/musician who moved to the midwest for love from NYC. I am also a teaching artist, and feel blessed to do the work I do. I have taught at the Vassar NY Stage & Film program, the Broadway Theatre Institute, and been a guest artist and performer nationally and internationally starting at a young age. I'm an NEA grant receipient for my feature length screenplay Parallel Chords and have been commissioned to write 3 other films. It's been a long journey but after directing a short version of film, Parallel Chords (overture), which screened over 30 times nationally in festivals, (Won Best Short Film, Best Sound, Jury Award for Excellence in Music, Curator's Pick /Cash prize WIF Seattle)  we are now in post production for the feature version of the film. I love other filmmakers and it is important to me to support other creatives making their own way. I adore Seed & Spark!
