Hi, I’m Katerina. I bring people, ideas, and inspiration together to make the world a better place.
I’ve always considered myself to be a rebel of sorts—I couldn’t be the doctor or lawyer my strict, Taiwanese tiger dad wanted me to be. I was never at peace working regular 9-5 day jobs, always yearning for more intellectual and creative fulfillment. I’m never, ever satisfied with the status quo.
Over the years, I’ve learned to embrace my disruptive nature. Impatiently devouring knowledge while working across companies and functions enabled me to birth my own ventures. My belief that there is a better way to integrate work and play motivates me to share my philosophy with others through speaking and writing. My passion for feminism, diversity, and progress lights a fire beneath everything I do.
Today, I help transform companies into beloved brands as the Strategic Director of Spectacle Marketing. I’m also building the vibrant community Asian Americans want and deserve as the co-founder of Slant’d. In the past, I’ve orchestrated programs like Flickr’s first-ever 20 Under 20, launched dozens of products as both a marketer and product manager, and earned my Bachelors of Arts in English and Music from Cornell University.
Thanks for spending your time learning more about me. Come say hi—we may be future collaborators, partners, or friends!
