Kate landed her first TV reporter job for ITV West while she was still a student. In between History lectures at Bristol University, Kate would nip off and shoot a package on Bristol Rovers. Once she graduated, Kate spent a year presenting a live science show for young people around the world as part of the Faraday Lectures for the Institute of Engineering and Technology.

In 2008, Kate started working for Channel 4. During her six years there, she ran the online editorial for some of C4’s biggest shows and worked her way up to become one of the Channel’s youngest commissioning editors.

Her commissions have won numerous awards with D-Day: As It Happens most recently picking up the BAFTA for Digital Creativity (2014) and the Digital Emmy (2014).
When she’s not busy finding out about what is in your fridge, Kate spends lots of her life planning her next meal, cooking, pedaling along Brighton seafront, listening to Dolly Parton, and playing funk. She has played her flute and saxophone at many festivals around the country, including Glastonbury.
