Hey! I'm Cait, a designer (and dilettante) based in East London.

Currently I'm on a career break! I'm taking my time enjoying some art courses at the Royal Drawing School, and writing my blog Thrifted Design Leadership. Watch this space for what's next 👀

Playful user experience design, and the overlap of the tech and games worlds, have been the focus of my professional career - from Head of UX Design at DREST, the world's first luxury fashion game, to leading Pet Rescue Puzzle Saga at King  to teaching a language through GPT3 and games at Memrise!

I delight in building high performing teams, helping designers grow their careers and improving design culture across organisations 🌸
