Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem ei est.

Kate Caldwell

Artistic Director and Producer, Testify


Kate Caldwell is an Austin native and a performer and writer with a BA in Theatre and Dance from UT Austin. She has spent the last nine years working at ERM, an environmental consulting firm, first as part of the Knowledge Sharing and Communications team and for the last four years as the Global Digital Marketing Manager.

Kate is also the creator and artistic director of Testify, a monthly live storytelling show in Austin, where over the last five years she has personally coached storytellers in the crafting and shaping of hundreds of personal stories. With a background strongly rooted in performance and the organization of information, Kate has found storytelling to be the natural intersection of these seemingly unrelated disciplines.

Kate hates bios but loves fried chicken and whiskey.
