Office Administrator 949 334 0287
Growing up in an art-loving family, Kate developed an interest in fashion, art, and music early in her life. From a young age, her life revolved around music and the music scene. She began helping her friends with underground music promotion and party planning, learning the fundamentals of marketing the hard way. In college, she turned her hobby into a career, earning her degree in marketing at Cal State Fullerton
While in college, Kate started working in fashion and retail marketing at Crush Clothing in Costa Mesa, California, where she exercised her creative talent and honed her expertise.
She later went on to work for Lomography, an analog toy camera company in West Hollywood. If you’re asking yourself, “What is an analog toy camera?” you’re not alone. Think low-tech, experimental photography—like your favorite old family photo. Analog cameras force the photographer to focus on the basics of photography and composition. Their extreme simplicity makes them challenging and rewarding. At Lomography, Kate taught classes about the toy camera and led photography tours, encouraging people to experiment with new techniques and settings.
Kate connected with Zumasys in 2012 and was instantly drawn to the culture. Although she is relatively new to the company, she already has several stand-out memories. Zumapalooza, Zumasys’s customer solutions summit in Las Vegas, was less than a month after Kate began working. Kate travelled with the rest of the company to Vegas for the event, making it the perfect way to get to know her new coworkers and learn about the Zumasys culture.
Now that she’s at Zumasys, art has become a major hobby for Kate, and she has been getting into interior design and hoping to focus more on her own photography. In her free time, she’s probably reading a design blog or taking photos of her favorite subject—her Chihuahua Betty.
How does what you do benefit customers? As Office Administrator, I organize a lot of company events, lunches, and holiday décor. The drink cooler in the Nerdery West is a big deal here, so I make sure that’s well stocked. By helping our employees in any way I can, I’m helping them deliver great service to our customers.
