Midwest born and raised, Caitlin graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a B.A. in Film and African Studies. Afterwards, she embarked upon a 4-month backpacking and blogging trip through Kenya, South Africa, and Europe. When she came home, she was inspired... and broke. So she worked double shifts at a vodkatorium and lived in a turkey blind in her brother’s basement for nine months — just enough time to save barely enough money to move to New York City in the fall of 2012.
Caitlin interned at several NYC-based production companies, including Scott Rudin Productions and Gigantic Pictures. She served as an Associate Producer on the international co-production, SINS OF A FATHER; wrote and produced the short film, BLAME; and co-wrote MOMMY'S BOX, a dramatic feature that finished production in late 2014. Her historical drama pilot, ’57 CENTRAL, was shortlisted as a Top 5 finalist in the Fox Dramatic Script Call competition and was previously under development at LA-based production company, Echo Lake Productions.
One of Caitlin’s most recent projects includes collaborating with actress/writer Jessica Sherr to adapt her successful one-woman Bette Davis play, "Ain’t for Sissies", into the feature script, BETTE. In 2019, she was a Semifinalist for the CineStory TV Fellowship, a Finalist in the ScreenCraft Comedy and Sci-Fi & Fantasy Screenplay Contests, and a Finalist for the 2019 Austin Film Festival with her mockumentary social satire, FITTER FAMILIES. She was also the recipient of the inaugural Rooster Teeth Development Fellowship.
Her directorial debut - the dark comedy short film, WICKED IMAGE - is an official selection of the 2020 Garden State Film Festival. She currently works at HBO in NYC.
