Hey, I'm Kate!

New York, New York

I was born in NYC, raised in Greece, Maine, NJ, and received my BFA-acting at UNC-Greensboro. I moved to NYC when I was 21 and pursued acting and worked a lot in the off and off-off Broadway curcuit. My first NYC job was at Theater For The New City, which of course, I was very excited about. Moving from job to job was very thrilling to me. I was getting a strong background in theater and working quite a bit. Tragedy struck when I was 26. My mother died very suddenly and it hit me very hard. I had a very hard time putting one foot in front of the other and ended up leaving the acting world I had built so fiercely. Acting had always been a part of me, my identity, and as a result, I never really left acting. I just put it on the back burner. I had then fallen in love, got married, and raised 3 wonderful children. Still am. In between raising kids, I went in and out of theater jobs. It was perfect for me. Being part of productions and also going back to my family at the end of the day or night. I was in "Streetcar Named Desire" when we lived in Los Altos, Ca. for one year. It was amazing. We moved back to NY and just as I had gotten pregnant with my second child, I was cast in "The Vagina Monologues" and performed the "Cunt" monologue as a fundraiser for R.I.S.E., a rape crisis center in Sullivan County, NY. It was a thrilling and beautiful show and hearing the audience cheer, "Cunt! Cunt! Cunt!" after I had asked them to say it out loud was really crazy exhilarating! This was a fairly socially conservative crowd and seeing them lose themselves in chanting this quite profane word was incredible! One person in the audience waited for me after one of the shows and introduced himself. Paul Austin, a prolific actor and director asked me if I'd be interested in working with him at his theater in Liberty, NY at The Liberty Free Theater. I played the title role in Delores, which was about a woman who was beaten by her husband to the point where she ends up shooting him and has run away from him to her sister's to escape. Again, the women who came up to me after the show each night were pouring their hearts out to me about their abusive partners and what kinds of Hell they went through. This catharsis was really getting to me. In a good way. The storytelling actors do and the effect it can have on their audience is really astounding and moving. 

After my 3rd baby was born, I really wanted to get back into acting as a professional, but this time I wanted to pursue film and TV. I had never pursued that medium before. I booked a few jobs, was in The Regroup Theater Co., which was a company which performed readings and performances by The Group Theater. I met a lot of wonderful actors there and had the fortune of being under the direction of Estelle Parsons, was in a gala event at Symphony Space and was part of a great evening which included Lois Smith, amongst other brilliant actors.

Raising young kids and pursuing an acting career without a lot of money hanging around was a bit brutal and after the Sandyhook massacre I decided to open a kids acting program. It was really fun and rewarding. My program started with 13 kids in my livingroom of my apartment and exploded over the next 3 years to 130 kids/year and had to move to The Players Theater in Greenwich Village. I loved teaching these eager, wide eyed kids. We did it all. From Shakespeare to The female version of The Odd Couple and improvisations in between. We were doing games that Broadway actors do before their shows opened, we were doing games that NYU Tisch grad acting students were doing. I was really stretching them. A lot of the kids who came to me were very shy and their parents wanted them to become a little less shy. One kid came all the way from Forest Hills, an hour subway ride away because she was selectively mute. Not a word came out of her mouth for 7 weeks of classes. We had 3 more weeks before the show for their families and I had given her a small role to see if she could do it. We had a rehearsal on the 7th week and out of her moth came the words! It was brilliant! The kids in class were amazed! When I told her mom, she burst into tears which made me burst into tears. It was a moment to behold. And to add to this story she did say her lines in front of 70 people which was astonishing and beautiful. I was pretty proud to say the least.

I ran my program, Kate's Kids for 4 years and in January 2018 I was starting to rethink things. I really wanted to give acting another try. I hadn't given up. I played the queen of matriarchs, Amanda Wingfield in The Glass Menagerie at The Players Theater and later played Lady Van Tassel in Sleepy Hollow  also at The Players Theater. I also dabbled in writing and started going to The Shelter Theater company's "Shelter Sundays," where one can bring in writing or perform a monologue, etc. A gym for actors and writers, if you will. I performed at their "Peep Shows" at The Bell House in Brooklyn. July 2017, I had an opportunity I couldn't turn down and that was to act in an Indie film, Ask For Jane, a story about "The abortion 7," a group of college aged women who started giving abortions to young women in need. I played Cody Horn's (Magic Mike) mother and had a funny scene with actress, Alison Wright (Sneaky Pete, The Americans). In the fall I worked on a few Discovery ID shows including playing the lead in Pandora's Box. I played a serial killer! What a nhoot that was!

Back at my home things were not going well personally. My marriage was falling apart and in January of 2016, my husband and I decided we were going to separate. Too broke to live under 2 roofs in NYC we are quite successfully getting along, raising our kids, and living under 1 roof.

I started writing Messy in April of 2017. Between all of what was going on and the introduction to internet dating (the good and the bad) I thought I had a pretty great story to tell. I'm hoping that I have the same experience as I did when I played in The Vagina Monologues and in Delores with people coming up to me and sharing their stories of marriage, separation, raising kids, dating, and anything else they want to share with me.
