Born and raised in So Cal, Catalina Combs aka Cat has had a love for film since she can remember. It started with the VHS of Jurassic Park. She would crank it up on the surround sound, turn off all the lights, and sit front and center on the couch with a large bowl of popcorn. (Which she still does to this day).
Cat has a BA in English from Santa Clara University and an MA in Creative Writing. Her reviews have been featured on Blackgirlnerds.com and Blackfilm.com. She has moderated film panels and interviewed stars like Rosario Dawson, Tessa Thompson, Jessica Alba, Gabrielle Union, Lashana Lynch, Linda Hamilton, Jeff Goldblum, Chris Hemsworth, and Lennie James.
Cat is writer and critic for BlackGirlNerds. She is also a Tomatometer approved critic on Rotten Tomatoes. When she’s not watching and reviewing film, she is baking, playing Monopoly, or playing soccer.
