I suppose it's only fair to warn you: Here lives a certain femme fatale trapped in the mind of a writer with an overactive imagination.  

But if you're after the straight facts...

She has been a correspondent for Variety since 2011 and has also contributed to publications such as: The Washington Post, WIREDThe Guardian, Esquire, NewsweekPlayboy Magazine (yes, the one you read for the articles!), Mashable, Entertainment Weekly, USA Weekend, New York Magazine's Vulture, Elle Canada, CNN Travel, The Independent (UK)A.V. Club, FlareTime OutDelta Sky Magazine, Complex, NylonCanadian Traveller, USA Today, and many others.  She mostly covers film/TV, business, travel, tech, and...espionage.

For her stories, Katherine has had a chance to interview a diverse range of 'intriguing' personalities, including Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, Tony, Pulitzer, and Nobel Prize winners and nominees. Some of these include Dame Judi Dench, James Franco, Michael Douglas, Jeffrey Rush, Richard Dreyfuss, Sam Rockwell, Melissa Leo, Sir Ian McKellen, Willem Dafoe, Alan Cumming, Tony Kushner, John Patrick Shanley, Kevin Kline, Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, Ethan Hawke, Catherine Keener, Simon Pegg, Josh Hutcherson, Tom Hiddleston, Dick Van Dyke, Rob & Carl Reiner, Kate Winslet, and even the Dalai Lama – just to ‘name drop’ a few.

She hosts a podcast: Mind the Future, which features guests from the world of art, science, and technology— asking them to predict how what they do and love will look like as we fast-forward into the future.
