He attended Quigley High School and Florida Institute of Technology. He also served two tours with the U.S. Marine Corp in the Middle East.

Cathy was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta in western Canada, and travelled the United States and Europe in her youth as a drummer in a marching band. In college, she majored in Computer Science which opened the door to career opportunities in the States.

"I met the man of my dreams in, surprisingly, a local Chicago bar and it was "love at first pint!"
