"Having a conversation with Cate took me back to MTV when it was Music Television -chatting it up with Martha Quinn and Downtown Julie Brown... fun, smart, witty and spontaneous!"  
- Grammy Winner Jody Watley   
"Working with Cate was more like having a conversation with a friend, than doing an interview. It was a most enjoyable discussion!"  
~Tom Gimbel- Foreigner   
 “Cate is an absolute professional and has a way of making you feel right at home. Her interviews are extremely thought-provoking without feeling contrived. It’s always a pleasure to talk to Cate.” 
~ Michael Sweet- Stryper 
"Cate's love for the genre informs a deep knowledge of her subject. It comes through in her writing. She's also one of the best interviewers we've ever met.” 
 ~Valerie Day and John Smith- NU SHOOZ

 “Speaking with Cate was like catching up with a dear friend, I forgot I was being interviewed. She is extremely personable, likable and a very good listener. I look forward to reading Cate's new book and I feel honored to be included among the list of legendary artists.” 
~ Roxy Petrucci- Vixen 
"Cate has an uncanny way of making you instantly feel like you're a bestie chatting over a cup of coffee. It's never an interview with her. It's a catch-up session."

I started off covering hockey and figure skating exclusively for several years before signing on to waste a year of my life writing an authorized bio on an Olympic champion.  That mess left me broke, knocked up and with a case of writer’s block so bad that even signing a personal check caused my fingers to cramp.  I took a breather, found out where my sanity was hiding (the Olympic champ, BTW, is still a head case- karma perhaps?) and eventually found myself once again in front of a keyboard determined to be able to write about absolutely anything at all.

I came back stronger and have spent the last 18 years knee deep in anything entertainment related. You have seen my work here, there and lots of other places in between. I spent a few years as a senior staff writer babbling about how Kanye West needs to drive a clown car filled with Kardashian’s off a cliff with him or how, whether you like her or not, Cardi B is currently the hardest twerking chick in the business.  I don’t like rehashing what everyone else has already said and I’m not a straight-laced, just-the-facts reporter.  I’m that little voice in most everyone’s head that just so happens to speak up. I’m not afraid to say what everyone else is dancing around and I kind of think that many readers appreciate that.

I’m all about connecting with my readers. Whether you love me or think I’m a total trash bag is kind of secondary. If I can say something that makes you need to open up a little comment box and say anything at all, then my job has been done.

Radio is in my blood. My dad was a disc jockey back in the 70's and some of my earliest memories are from a dimly lit radio station studio. It makes sense that being in the studio now with a hot mic feels as natural to me as breathing. 



Here are just a handful of the places that you've either read my work or listened to me talk about celeb news or new music within the last few years.
