More about me: 
Hello! My name is Kat. I’m an interactive artist, designer, and performer. I have been involved with the arts since my first dance recital at the age of 3.  Not long after that, my parents gifted my sister and I their old camcorder. Soon we were making stop-motion movies with our American Girl Dolls, dangling Star Wars action figures from dental floss, and perfecting our voiceover techniques.  By high school I was performing in three to four shows a year and assembling a fine art portfolio.  I went on to earn my BFA in Graphic Design from Mass College of Art and Design, graduating in 2012 with portfolio honors. 

The same year I was hired in the Creative Department of  WGBH Boston, one of America’s #1 providers of PBS media and content. I was employed here for over 5 years and twice promoted during my tenure. Here I worked closely with a broad range of nationally recognised public media clients, including
NOVA, Arthur, Curious George, Masterpiece, FRONTLINE, American Experience, and many more PBS, NPR, and CPB programs/initiatives.

This hands-on position allowed me to dive into a multitude of rich projects from the ground up. From hand drawn logos to set design to live broadcast infographics, this job shaped me as a creative. I learned that my favourite projects were big (literally as well as figuratively), comprehensive, and impactful. In particular, my work designing a pilot series from the ground up 
(Point Taken) drove me to take the next steps in my career – Leaving Boston for London in 2017 to earn my MA at Ravensbourne University London.

During this time I focused the expansion of my practice to include large-scale installation, projection-mapping, and other ways of bringing the physical and digital worlds together, creating vivid and immersive experiences.

At Ravensbourne I served as the Vice President of Postgraduate Studies for the 2017–2018 cohort. I also worked extensively with Greenwich Citizens UK, ultimately serving as co-chair in the 2018 Greenwich Citizens Election Assembly. (Learn more Here.)

I graduated in November of 2018, spending the next several months travelling and documenting my Thesis work (An interactive installation, “the Assembly of Self”, showcased @ the Ugly Duck in Bermondsey London, September 2018 for London Design Week.)

I am now available for creative work in NYC, Boston, London and beyond. A reminder, this site shows my work in print, digital, broadcast, brand, identity and marketing. For interactive experience, installation, performance and live media experimentation, please visit
