About Kat 


I am a human-centered designer and writer who believes in the power held at the crux of business and design. To me, good design means utilizing thoughtful, iterative methodologies that create more meaningful experiences for humankind. 

A military brat hailing from sunny San Diego, California, I recently relocated to Baltimore, Maryland to pursue my MBA/MA in Design Leadership at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School and the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Prior to moving out east, I enjoyed a career as a journalist, editor and social media consultant. I covered events such as Art Basel Miami Beach, reviewed hotels like The Four Seasons, and interviewed designers at New York Fashion Week. To view more of my editorial work, click here.

In 2014, I received my BA in Communication Studies from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
