Kathryn is an actress, director, producer, and writer from Vancouver, BC.
Her passion for storytelling and deep appreciation of film started from a young age. Offering a a unique mix of creativity, artistry and business acumen, Kathryn holds a Bachelor in Marketing Management and has a successful career in branding and advertising. After being signed with an agent in 2016, Kathryn's varied experiences led her back to acting and filmmaking. She has been passionately studying at studios such as JBA, Rogues West and AMAW, and collaborating with other independent filmmakers ever since.
As Marketing Director on the Board of the Vancouver Short Film Festival, it’s not uncommon for Kathryn to have multiple projects on the go. In late 2016 she co-wrote and produced Pepperman Production's "I Love Chinaski When He Writes About Death", which since has won "Best Screenplay" at the Moscow Shorts Festival in Russia.
Her 2018 short film, "Chasing Saudade" marks Kathryn's first foray into directing. As writer, producer and lead actress for a short that filmed in two countries, her first project was an ambitious one. It's currently on the festival circuit and so far is an Official Selection at three international festivals, including the Sayulita Film Festival. Kathryn's film will be screening there, on the beach in Mexico, in late January 2019.
Future projects include "A Place Called Hope", a short film that Kathryn wrote based on the early life of her maternal Grandmother who experienced the harsh poverty of Northern BC during the Great Depression.
