Based in Sydney's inner west, Kate works as a freelance director, cinematographer and photographer. 

After studying under full scholarship at Sydney Film School in 2013, Kate worked at Panavision Sydney where she managed the flow of equipment used on various commercials, television productions and feature films. 

Since then Kate has begun to make her mark shooting comedy- most notably acting as DoP for sketch show Freudian Nip (ABC iView's Fresh Blood initiative) and the independent web-series ‘All We Have Is Now’ and ‘The Real Bloggers of Sydney’, with a combined viewership of 100k+ online. Kate's direction and screenwriting has picked up awards at Sydney Underground Film Festival (Juror's Choice for 'Biting Down') and Willoughby Film Festival (Best Screenplay for 'The Gesture’). 

As a young filmmaker involved in the LGBT community, Kate is passionate about capturing the queer experience on film and will continue to push for these stories to be heard. 

Kate has the sufficient camera set up (GH5) for short form documentary and online TVC's. Please contact for further enquiries.
