Hi! I'm an actor, mom, an NYC resident since 1997, and ready to help you nail it.

Meisner (Neighborhood Playhouse) and Stanislavski (Vakhtangov lineage) trained. I appreciate all techniques from Suzuki to Strasberg.

I taught acting to ages 6-18 for over 15 years- scene study, on-camera technique, and improv. Private coaching offered to all ages. Long list of Off-Off Broadway credits, TV credits include: HBO Max, Netflix, and CBS.

Email me to set up a time slot if you wish:

I love coaching, reading, and giving general feedback, but happy to shut the heck up and let you do your thing.

P.S. Trigger warning: I have a potty mouth (sometimes), and will discuss sex, religion and politics as it relates to the scene ONLY.

I'm NYC Eastern Standard Time, be sure to mention your time zone.

In a pinch, moneywise? I get it. Message me, we can work something out.

Venmo is preferred, Paypal takes a cut!

" Cate is one of the best readers on this platform. Gives great notes and has amazing energy. "
" One of the top readers I've ever had! Having a former acting instructor reading opposite you is any actors best ammunition. Gave great, carbonating, life filling notes on the dime that were true to the circumstances and that gave me way better direction than I had when we ran our first take. Cate's the kind of reader you're not supposed to just read with once and carry on, but someone you want to have for every audition moving forward!! "
