Hi, I'm Catherine. I've been studying the wonders of the Web since 1998, when a blind man taught me all about the Internet (ask me to tell you that story some time).
Since those early days of WWW-awareness, I've produced volumes of slavishly perfect code for The Man, headed my own freelance business (nine years and counting), and even served a term as a project manager for a well-regarded interactive agency. This range of experience means that I've seen the business from all angles, and had the opportunity to apply my skill set to diverse projects: everything from small mom- and-pop business builds, complex B2B company website overhauls, and information-dense multimedia portals. The result is that I'm at ease with transitioning from managing deliverables and milestones, collaborating on the perfect wireframe, or crafting the perfect stylesheet. As long as the end goals are order, logic, and a great user experience, I'm there.
When I'm not obsessing over the organization of my virtual universe, I dabble in photography, write essays about travel and food, and sew clothes from a stash of circa 1972 McCall patterns that belonged to my mom (hi, Mom!). I'm a classic car fanatic. I am based in San Francisco and am grateful for a good life.
Why Mobtown Design?
Glad you asked! Mobtown is a favorite nickname for Baltimore City, where I grew up and lived for most of my formative years. I'm proud of my roots and family's history in what's regarded as a gritty but quirky and beautiful harbor town, which by the way, also goes by the moniker "Charm City". Hopefully the raven at the bottom of the page makes a little more sense now, too. Yes, I have seen The Wire.
