As Mr. Kate’s official videographer, Brad Etter or as we sometimes call him, BowRad, understands that creative brilliance, irreverent humor, and high definition closeups (which turns him on a little too much) are the key ingredients to a trademark Mr. Kate video. Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, he is a Midwest boy braving the West Coast as a videographer and filmmaker. This also means he isn’t flaky and has an affinity for deep dish pizza. He is so visually oriented that he would probably rather spend the evening with his camera than with friends. Fortunately, his job allows him to hang out with the Mr. Kate team and his camera simultaneously… does it get better than that?
Kathryn is the assistant blog editor fairy at Mr. Kate sprinkling photography, writing, and idea dust wherever needed. She grew her wings on the east coast and now lives with her fluffy moon child “Luna” in Los Angeles. Acting, books, Laurel Canyon, and drinking yummy coffee are a few of her favorite things. Careful because Kathryn’s humor is contagious and will cure you of all that ails you. For any blog related inquiries, please contact [email protected]
This LA native went to the same Waldorf high school that Mr. Kate went to and together they share the bond of a kooky and creative education. Emma went to college in Oregon and now is home in LA, pursuing her music (she has a crazy beautiful voice). She’s happy to be getting her crafting/fashion outlet through Mr. Kate where she does original content posts on both style and home DIYs. When Emma is not busy singing (which is usually 24/7…even when she’s blogging), you can catch her expertly quoting any Will Ferrell movie, or practicing some Beyonce dance moves.
