Hi 👋 I'm Caitlin, a product designer, writer, researcher, and dog lover living on Vancouver Island.
My background in engineering began in research (I studied how drivers adapted to a multi-lane roundabout using drones!) followed by training as an engineer in the public sector. I loved solving technical problems but as a creative thinker I began to wonder if there might be a better career fit for me. I embarked on my transition from engineering to product/UX design part time in 2019 and now full time in 2020. My technical skills are now paired with my passion for technology, story-telling, creativity, design, product thinking, and psychology.
