Hi, I'm Cat.

I'm a product designer specializing in visual design. In another life, I was a web designer and transitioned to user experience and product design, and have been working in product for the last 6 years.

I'm passionate about accessibility, mapping out mental models and workflows, designing scalable systems, and anything related to user research. I enjoy the challenge of breaking down complex problems and discovering simple, elegant solutions.

I'm a mentor in multiple design communities, assisting new talent transitioning into the industry and landing their first design role.

When I'm not working, I enjoy long hikes along the coast with my dog, devouring spicy food, or drawing in Figma.
