I'm Catherine,

an interaction & experience designer.

With a background in psychology, education, food and research, I work to make people's lives better - from designing large systems to the smallest, delightful interactions.

I’ve worked with teachers at BloomBoard, helped older adults through GTRI, and led industry innovation projects with Method.

I'm currently completing my Masters in Human-Computer Interaction focused in Psychology & Industrial Design.

I'll be ready for my next challenge in May 2017. Let's talk.

I create thoughtful & engaging product experiences.

I started as a UX/UI designer for educational enterprise tools. With a few years of experience and a passion for design, I came to Georgia Tech to complement my digital design and research skills with a more holistic, cross-disciplinary approach.

I've tackled projects from augmented reality navigation to universally accessible transportation, and UX/UI design the military. I'm currently developing tools to help designers be more creative based on mood and other personal characteristics.

I like to help people & solve problems.

A researcher at heart, I love to understand people and make things to help them. Design allows me to be curious, to solve hard problems, to dispel worries and elicit joy. My diverse experience is my strength and I find every design challenge is an opportunity to learn something new.

In my work, I'm always looking to the future. Our world today falls short in many ways - from the basic needs of those with arthritis, to educational opportunities and physical accessibility.

That's a future I hope to change and I believe design is the difference.

I'm a scuba diving
DIY-addict who really
likes to hike & sleep.

After hours at the computer, I recharge best when I'm away from technology. You'll find me in the kitchen exploring new recipes or around the corner hiding from my Bengal cat. I could spend all day on a diveboat in the middle of the ocean. And if you can't get in touch with me, I'm probably dancing in the desert somewhere.
