Nice to meet you, I’m Cat.
I’m a designer, technologist and storyteller.
I have an M.F.A. in Design and Technology from Parsons School of Design and a B.A. in Creative Media and Technology from New York University. I am currently at Verizon’s 5G Lab where I manage creative projects, direct and develop short-term prototyping initiatives around cutting-edge technology, and execute creative. I previously worked at Sesame Street in Digital Design.
I am also an Adjunct Faculty Member in New York University’s Media Culture and Communication program where I teach Creative Coding and New Media Research Studio.
I am both a maker and a marketer, as I believe that prototypes are powerful tools for storytelling.
Across all my work, I am interested in using technology as a storytelling tool, particularly when thinking about how new technology will change the way we design and the applications we create.
I’ve explored how games can teach people about policies and laws, how AI can help kindergarten students learn better, and how chatbots can educate us about their rich history of development. In my current role and in the courses I teach at NYU, I focus on educating and inspiring makers about new technology so they can design differently for the future.
