Max Kater was born and raised in a beige-and-leafy suburb of Los Angeles, California where she dreamed of Bright Lights and the Big City.
After a brief stint as a Junior Publicist in Hollywood she landed her first job as a Fashion Editor and never looked back. Her job took her to all the fashion capitals and ultimately to Hong Kong, where she met her husband and business partner, Peter Kater, in a private disco. Max gave up her career as a Fashion Editor to be a stay-at-home Mother, dreaming of gorgeous housecleaning products that didn’t exist.
Peter Kater was born in Sydney, Australia and had the same itchy feet to see the world as Max. Growing tired of morning group exercise at Mitsubishi Corporation, "I do miss the morning stretches sometimes," he set his cap for Old Hong Kong. There he worked for an eco-savvy company that started his long association with environmentally conscious businesses. After a long and successful tenure in the corporate world, Peter has been gently coaxed away from his lucrative career to become the Managing Director of Murchison-Hume."Not nearly the same salary, but the perks are good."
After launching in Sydney in 2007 they have returned to live in Los Angeles with their two young sons, Ben and Charlie who were the inspiration behind Boy’s Bathroom Cleaner.
