Following our very jolly Christmas dinner, I thought it would be merry to gather intel on the Clearlefties' 1) favourite Christmas song, and 2) what they received from their Secret Santa. And here's what they said...
Following ten years in New York, Kate moved back home and brought her skills to Clearleft. She wears two hats at Clearleft. Kate is our Events Manager. She produces our conferences, which include UX London, Leading Design, Ampersand and dConstruct, handling everything from preparing speakers’ contracts and booking their flights, to organising the parties.
Garfield the money box
She's also our Finance Manager. Kate deals with our invoicing, payments and a small mountain of receipts. (Plus the birthday present kitty, in the form of a Garfield money-box).
Away from the office
Aside from an annual indulgence in increasingly elaborate Christmas card production, Kate spends much of her time writing, usually in the form of jolly, dystopian stories (that will be a formative diet of George Orwell and Smash Hits for you). She was recently published in a short story anthology, The Book of Unwritten Rules, and has completed her first novel (which, tremendously, appears to have found a publisher, so should be available soon...). She is currently working on a sitcom script. (Fun fact: Jeremy gave a sterling comedy performance during a recent Clearleft read-through.) Kate is immensely proud of having been told she has a 'troubling addiction to parentheses' (this is true).
