Kathleen was born and raised in Southern California. She was educated at California State University, Long Beach where she studied Speech and Communications. As the entertainment industry was her primary interest she joined KDOC TV56 as an Account Executive focused on commercial and paid programming. After several years at KDOC, her love for children’s programming motivated her to migrate into the animation industry where she initially worked in post-production sound for ScreenMusic. In 1997, Warner Bros. recruited Kathleen to provide production management for films such as “Iron Giant”, “Osmosis Jones” and ultimately producer of creature visual effects on “Scooby Doo, The Movie”. While at Warner Bros. she also produced commercials for “Century 21″, “Pebbles Cereal”, “Burger King” and “CNN”. She was the Associate Producer on Scholastic’s film “Clifford’s Really Big Movie”, and in 2006 completed work on the feature “Curious George”.
Kathleen has lent her voice to the Machinima hit “Red vs. Blue” as the character “Tex” for the past nine years. Being asked to Produce Season 10 of Red vs. Blue has been a highlight of her career! She enjoys interacting with the fans via internet as well as the animation conventions the cast attends. Being a positive role model for teenagers is extremely important to her. She started a “Good Deed” program on the Red vs. Blue site, inspiring the members to take the time to do unsolicited acts of kindness. Her collection of these good deeds goes well into the thousands.
Kathleen looks forward to meeting all her fans at both the Brisbane and Adelaide expos in 2012. There are signing and photo sessions throughout each Saturday (10.30am to 5.30pm) and Sunday (11am to 5pm) excluding breaks and there’s a general admission Q&A on both days of each weekend.
Guest confirmed health and other commitments pending.
