About Me

Who am I?

Well, I'm Kat and I'm just finishing my final year of BA (hons) Web Design at the University of Teesside. I'm from Newcastle myself though!

Prior to being at Teesside I studied Broadcast Journalism for 2 years at The Nottingham Trent University.

My main passion is Web Design but I also love working with graphics, sound, video and I love photography too.

Hobbies and Interests

Archery, Reading, Listening to Music, Writing, playing games on my computer, surfing the net for cool sites, photography, and more!

There's no way I could forget to mention GirlGuidingUK which is a big part of my life and which I've been a member of since I was 5. I'm currently a Guide Leader (the 10-14 year olds) as well as a Ranger (14-26). Also, I'm lucky enough to have been asked to be the Assistant Webmaster on the Guide's Centenary Camp next year - I can't begin to say how much I'm looking forward to that!
