Hi! I’m Catt Small.

People are at the center of everything I do. I am currently leading the Product Design team and investing in the future I want to see at a studio called All Turtles. I also make games, write, teach, speak publicly, and organize events across the tech and games industries.


That’s how long I’ve been programming and designing. I grew up on the internet and began to code websites and games at the young age of 10.

I love writing and sharing tips, but it's time-intensive and takes a lot of effort. This kind of labor is not cheap.
