Hi, I’m Kate Garrigan.

I’m a product designer and start-up founder in Denver, Colorado.

I specialize in incorporating new, disruptive technologies into existing business paradigms – like bringing machine learning and AI to commercial real estate and educational apps and digital content to publishing. I’ve even helped bring blockchain to the government. (I like to do other stuff, too.)

I’ve designed blockchain products, machine learning applications and AI-based software, as well as more traditional web, app, and digital book products. Contact me to chat!
