Cathy’s music career kicked off at Sony Music Australia starting as a junior PA and was quickly promoted to Sales Rep, then Promotions Manager and then Senior National Promotions Manager.  In 1997 Cathy jumped ship and moved to EMI Australia as National Promotions Manager and shortly afterwards was promoted to the Head of Marketing for Capitol Records.

After 6 years at EMI and at the height of her career and many music artist careers launched via the Capitol team, Cathy decided to take some time out, have some fun and go back packing around the world and at the same time plan her next career move.

On her return to Sydney in 2006 Cathy founded music management company ‘Original Matters’ which guides the careers of artists including multi ARIA award winner – Angus and Julia Stone, internationally renowned singer Darren Hayes and Jez Mead whom Yen Magazine described as ‘creating a Chinese whispers barrage of positive word-of-mouth’.
