Kate MacKenzie Albrecht was born in Los Angeles County, California on the 4th of June 1983. She attended Waldorf School before proceeding to study for a degree in Film Production at Loyola Marymount University. She also picked interest in theatre while in school and studied it too. Growing up in Hollywood, she got exposed to the entertainment industry and landed her first acting role at a young age.

However, Mr. Kate didn’t become a full business until she joined forces with her husband in 2011 and they built the brand together with Kate being the creative weirdo and Joey bringing the ideas to life. As part of their business, they started a home renovation and design aspect named “Help My House”. They started by renovating and decorating a 1920 quaint house, turning it into their beautiful home while recording and uploading the whole process on their channel. Thereafter, requests began to pour in with people asking for their help with their houses.
The couple also has an online store (shop.mrkate.com) where they market their top-class home and beauty products including T-shirt, hoodies, jewelry, accessories, prints, and stickers.
