About Me

I'm a UX + Product Designer based in Denver, currently working on a startup called Cactus.

I'm originally from Iowa. I started out in graphic design, then found web design. I worked for a few agencies that taught me web development, then landed my job at Craftsy in UX—I'd discovered my passion. I worked at Craftsy for over five years, then created a startup with colleagues, which leads me to now.

I also participated in a panel once called Design Disruptors from InVision.

I love my work, traveling, football, and Phish. If you want to say hi, please send me an email: katieblackman@gmail.com.
