About Catherine ~ Warm & Welcoming
I work with people who are looking for a creative voice for their project – a voice that will bring their words to life. I help producers, directors, and developers bring out the essence of their message, script or product in an authentic way – while also making the process an absolute delight!
A dear friend (and fellow actor) once said of me: “Catherine’s true strength lies in her combined nature of young, playful, high-spirited little girl inside an adult, intelligent, practical exterior.”
And it’s true. I think in some ways I never grew up. Sure, I left the San Francisco Bay Area (where I was raised and got my BA in theatre at SFSU) to pursue theatre in Seattle (where I met my upstate NY writer husband). Over the past quarter-century, I’ve narrated audiobooks in Los Angeles, completed a Master of Fine Arts in Acting/Directing in Virginia Beach, acted in stages on both coasts, and recently landed in the middle of Kentucky. I’ve matured along the way, but I’m still a kid at heart.
I love puns more than I should, and I adore making people laugh. But I also go nuts over a beautifully designed spreadsheet (yes, Excel, I’m talking about you again). In clinical terms, I’m an organized creative – which makes me a very productive entrepreneurial artist. An experienced actor and voice over talent that clients love to work with again and again.
When I’m not behind a mic, in rehearsal, or on stage, I’m sampling my way through a local farmers market, volunteering at church reading to kids after school, or curled up with my hubby and two tabby cats binging Brooklyn 99 and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
You can read all the professional details on my resume – but I hope this gives you a more fully realized view of the curly, quirky, capable and qualified actor I am today.
