Cate McQuillen is creatively driven.

From her home base in the Northern Rivers Region of NSW, she and her partner Hewey Eustace are mememe productions, creating 'out there' children's programming for a new generation of content seekers. With a myriad of skills and interests, her greatest assets are her approach and attitude and ability to generate ideas, motivate, inspire and see the 'big picture'. These days she wakes up and pinches herself.
