Cait grew up focused on the ambition that one day she would be an actor, a filmmaker and would own her own production company. She spent many years as a kid with a video camera in her hand when other kids were playing with toys. After graduating highschool she went to college, found her tribe of like-minded creatives, met her future business partner Jonathan and earned a degree in Film and Video Production, graduating with honors. 

She has collectively worked on projects ranging from feature-length narrative and documentary films to music videos, commercials, and non-profit videos since 2008. 

In 2015, Cait worked alongside Francis Ford Coppola during his first "proof of concept" for Live Cinema, called Distant Vision. On this project, she and partner Jonathan worked as documentarians - capturing the essence of Coppola's endeavor which created another step in film history. 

As a filmmaker, her most recent project was an independent anthology film titled MONO, which raised over two thousand dollars for charity at its premiere screening in January of 2018.  She is an actor, writer, director, camera op, producer and editor.
