This hilarious entertainer offers a feminine approach to the world of intrigue, and is recognised worldwide for her astonishing skills in the fields of magic and mindreading.
Her incredible talents, combined with her signature style and charismatic demeanour has seen her become the recipient of multiple awards, including Australian Rainbow Award, the prestigious Professional Stage Magician award at the International/ Australian Magic Convention.

While busy mastering her skills in magic, Cath became fascinated by the psychology of human behaviour, and began to closely observe the body language and behaviours of those close to her. It was here she commenced her studies in mentalism, and now possesses extensive knowledge in the fields of telepathy, telekinesis, clairvoyance, pre-cognition and mind control.
She has been featured on an array of television programs, including Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala, Neighbours, the Denise Drysdale show Denise, 9am with David and Kim, A Current Affair, major TV weather reports, the Today show, and Australia’s Got Talent.

Raised in a family heavily involved in the arts, Cath immersed herself in live performance at a young age. However, it was upon receiving a magic kit on her fifth birthday that her desire to become a professional magician and attract worldwide fame became deeply ingrained. Demonstrating a natural flair in both magic and live performance, she excelled in magic school, where she was one of the only female students. She later became a professionally trained actor, contributing to her dynamic live performances later in life.
