I'm pretty camera-shy.

Hey, I'm Cat/Cathy!
I'm a designer with an appetite to thrive and grow. I've been told that I'm "occasionally" funny, so I felt like I should prove myself and incorporate some of that into this about page (ha).
My skillset is something that I've found myself really questioning over the last few years. I wanted to find out who I am, and from both experiencing different workplaces with different folks - I have come to narrow down what I believe my own strengths are. While I am a designer of all sorts, I am most at home in product and user experience design because it's my bread and butter. Asking "why" rather than how. What really drives my passion for the design field is the thinking that needs to go into every decision being made. My favorite part is challenging myself to come up with unique solutions when it seems there's nothing but a huge wall in front of me.
If we're talking more technical skills, I'm most at home with Adobe Creative Suite, Figma, Sketch, Adobe XD, and Invision. But don't let that fool you, I am a jack of all trades with knowledge ranging in front-end coding languages like Java, HTML/CSS, and Javascript to spoken languages like Mandarin Chinese and German as well. (Oh, and I can also wiggle my ears!) 
When I'm not designing or cracking bad jokes, I enjoy venturing out for nice latte art, watching Twitch streams, browsing Medium articles, gaming (current favorite is Teamfight Tactics), and sleeping... a lot of sleeping to rejuvenate the mind 😴
Once I got mistaken for a social media foodie (due to the copious amount of food pictures I posted pre-pandemic), so several Instagram foodies began following my personal account. It felt oddly fulfilling, so at least you know I'll have good food shots to share with the team.
