About Me

I am current an MFA candidate (class of 2022) at the University of Southern California in the Interactive Media & Game Design department.

For the past 15 years, I’ve worked in the trenches at agencies, start-ups, and in-house teams as a UX designer. I have a qualitative heart and a quantitative brain. I love observing people, listening to them, and figuring out how to help them. I’m a Stanford CS grad with a deep understanding of technology, the web, and mobile. I have experience in product strategy, user research (generative and evaluative), interaction design, prototyping, copywriting, and visual design.

Besides having a passion for game design and user experience, I also love immersive theatre, VR/AR/mixed reality, LARPs, escape rooms, cocktails, dining out, photography, architecture, and live music.

I have a bot created for me by my good friend Buzz Anderson; you can find it at @kathryn_ebooks on Twitter. It's usually more entertaining than I am.
