Senior engineer at Odyssey Studios on sessions for the album The Dreaming (incorrectly credited as assistant engineer in the liner notes for the album). Other albums he was involved in were The Who’s ‘Face Dances’ (1980), Stephen Tin Tin Duffy’s ‘She Makes Me Quiver’ (1984) and The Special AKA’s ‘In The Studio’ (1984).

Reed notes that Kate was one of the few people to spell his name correctly — phoning him to make sure — while his name is spelled in a variety of ways in the credits of albums by other artists.
