Welcome to My Site

This site showcases my work. The earliest is from my work as Creative Director at the Center for Advanced Research for Education, Intelligent Systems Division, Information Sciences Institute in the Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California. I worked there from 1998–2007.

Since that time, I have served two years in Morocco as a Small Business Development Consultant and three months in Benin as a Multimedia Training Specialist for the US Peace Corps. Most of the Gallery pages are from pictures taken in those places. Other photographs showcase my specialization in ethnic arts, artisans and performers.

In 2013 I began working for the University of Illinois as a Multimedia Design Specialist. I am a member of the Instructional Development team at the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning. My title is about to change as I have moved into a more challenging role. Stay tuned for developments.

You can read more about my work on my about page, download copies of my Resume and Curriculum Vitae, browse through my USC Project Portfolio and view photographs in the Gallery. Short writing samples, including narratives from grant applications and some short fiction, can be found starting here.

This site was originally built in 2007 with Adobe Spry (javascript widget kit). It is currently undergoing an upgrade to smooth out some of the problems introduced by changes to browser technologies. For more about the technologies used in this site, see About KatesWork.com.
