Who is Katie?

A UX Engineer who loves to create at the intersection of beautiful/accessible product design, and front-end development. I am currently seeking a new opportunity in Portland or remote!

I am currently contributing to various open source projects including Gatsby and if-me. I contribute by writing blog posts and designing styleguides.

When I'm not designing or coding, I am running a social organization known as Portland Future Leaders in Tech. The organization has grown to over 300 members and provides talks, workshops, hackathons, and happy hour events to the local community of budding techies.

While I have dabbled in different languages including Angular 2 and Ruby/Rails, my favorite languages to work with are CSS and React. I love using Gatsby to build blogs and websites.

Designer Tools

I have experience prototyping on Figma and Sketch and have experience using Webflow to design dynamic websites for my clients. I am familiar with using InVision when there needs to be collaboration with other designers.
