Having kick-started her career as a lead designer in the Microsoft Devices Group, Kait has worked to help Microsoft as a brand reposition itself through designing products and product experiences that leave people with a different brand perspective. Working to light up new and innovative Microsoft experiences through flagship hardware with new form factors, Kait took a key role in establishing the devices design groups overall principles and approach to product making, embracing the opportunity to work hand in hand with the software teams to deliver complete experiences. Her passion for hands on prototyping realizes quick opportunities to help solve complex design problems in the early phases fast, and has evolved over time into storytelling through functional prototypes, video creative direction, and CG animation. Inspired about how we think about the future, Kait is also energized by the future of automotive, the potential of space travel and all things robotic. Aside from being a designer/maker by day, she is a creative artist in her free time, painting hyper-realistic portraits with a surreal twist, where she strives to build a true emotional connection between viewer and subject.
