I'm Catherine,

an interaction & experience designer.

Drawing from a background of psychology, education, food and research, I work to make people’s lives better - from systematic change to the smallest interaction.

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.

Ready for my next challenge, May 2017.

I create thoughtful & engaging product experiences.

I started as a UX/UI designer for educational enterprise tools. A few years later, I came to Georgia Tech to grow from a digital designer and researcher into a more holistic, cross-disciplinary designer.

I've tackled projects from augmented reality navigation to universally accessible transportation, and UX/UI design for Uber and the military. These are just a few of my favorites. Contact me to see more!

Two words:
people & 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.

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 arthitis, 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.

It's true. The most important thing I learned as a psychology student was the importance of sleep. When I'm not at work (and awake), I'm chasing my bengal cat around or exploring new recipes in the kitchen. 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.
