About

Caitlin in front of a bookshelf in a beige V neck sweater

Hi there! I'm Caitlin, a graphic designer & overseas teacher turned web designer & front-end developer. My peers describe me as a fast learner who is detail-oriented, observant and investigative.

Creating interactive experiences that are user-centric, memorable, and delightful means a lot to me, especially when they benefit people's lives. I pour a lot of care into what I craft, and also have a deeply growth-oriented attitude. I love learning, and seek environments that embrace it too.

Outside of design & coding, I'm an avid karaoke goer and music dabbler who enjoys nature spots, psychology/well-being books, and video games.

Check out the Daily UI practice challenge I've been up to lately!
