I am a family travel expert having flown by air, traveled by train and driven by car with my two children multiple times a year to numerous international destinations! I am also an adventure seeker, proud Canadian, award-winning TV Editor, and Travel Writer.

I’ve had itchy feet since I was a teenager. My parents took me on summer road trips every year across Canada and ever since, I have been hooked on the notion of always being on the move! Now, as a Toronto, Ontario based mother, my children are embodying the desire to see the world as well.

The name KathrynAnywhere came about close to twenty years ago! About to embark on one of my first international travels, my mother wanted to know how to get in touch with me, so I set up an email account for my parents to contact me as I traveled overseas, “Kathryn” for my name and “Anywhere” as in they could reach me anywhere I went…

My travels have taken me to South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Portugal, Spain, France, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Switzerland, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Honduras, Mexico, Cayman Islands, St. Thomas, Cuba, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, all over the United States and coast to coast of Canada. Any time I am home in Toronto, you can be assured that I’m suffering from a severe case of wanderlust.

Them or me?

I am the mother of two sweet, beautiful and loving children. My daughter, Miss M who is 9, is an intelligent, voracious reader and talented artist. My son, Little Man, is 5, full of energy and I think he will be the captain of the Canadian rugby team one day as he is a wicked tackler.

I am perhaps best known as CIO – Chief Imagination Officer and as an Undercover Ninja over at OnFire Films. For many years I have worked away behind the scenes – I’m a Canadian Screen Award / Gemini Award / Canadian Cinema Editor Award nominee as an editor (lifestyle television and documentary)  and sometimes I direct too. Some of my best-known series work is Income Property (HGTV/DIY), Hockey Wives (W Network), Canadian Pickers (History) and Descending (OLN).

As of 2018, I also have a web series with a couple of other content creators where we push each other out of our comfort zones for a positive experience. We’ve had a blast filming season one – check us out here: Wait What !

Consulting and Speaking:

kathryn dickson speaking at blissdom

I am an experienced presenter, conversationalist, mentor, and workflow consultant. From my immense wealth of wide-ranging production experience, I can provide practical and useful hands-on tips, tricks and secrets of the trade for video production on a small budget and scale social media videos, live social media videos right up to large scale productions with budgets to match.

Why speak with someone who *might* know what they are doing when you can get the highly sought after professional who actually knows what they are doing and does it all the time?

Video production panel at Dad 2.0 on San Diego, California with La Guardia Cross, Jason Kravitz, Meredith MasonyWorkshops and panel conversations can be tailored for the audience skill, interest and practical level, as seen at Blissdom Social Media Conference in Canada and Dad 2.0 in the United States (moderated by renowned character actor, Jason Kravits).  Multiple day intensive sessions on production and post-production also available.
