Biography: Catherine grew up traveling the world as the daughter of American diplomats, living in places such as Bolivia, Iran and West Berlin. Her love and passion for film was ignited when she first saw Tootsie as a 12-year old and her life has never been the same since. She chose to attend Occidental College in Los Angeles because it was near Hollywood, and started writing film reviews for the college paper when she was 18. Since then, her work has been published in local papers, film reference collections and on her own personal site, CathsFilmForum.com. She is currently a contributor for AwardsWatch.com.
