Hi, I'm Kat. I'm an industrial designer by day and a floristminiaturist, and a printmaker by night.

I am the Principal Industrial Designer at Rise Design, an independent industrial design practice based in Chicago. As a designer, I have experience designing for Fortune 500 companies such as PepsiCo, Chevron, P&G, and AB InBev. I am an advocate for female-centric design within not only the design community but also within the design process itself. I sit on the Women In Industrial Design Chicago Board and lead the charge for IDSA Chicago's Women & Design Conference in October of 2018. I am the Chair of IDSA's Chicago Chapter. I have spoken about democratic design futures at a range of conferences, including the International Design Conference. 

I am also the founder and lead florist at Pluck, which teaches build your own bouquet events in the Chicagoland area.

Feel free to reach out to me if you're looking for a personal portfolio, or if you just want to be friends. In the meantime, check out these other, cooler websites:
