With a career focused on conceiving and delivering creative solutions for audience experiences, Kate works at the front end of KCA’s projects, ensuring deliverables meet client expectations and that the best teams are assembled for each commission.

After graduating from Oxford University in physiological sciences, Kate worked in the media industry before joining the National Museum of Science and Industry, a family of British museums that includes the Science Museum, London. At the Science Museum, Kate managed the museum’s commercial exhibitions and consulted to both government organisations and international corporations.

These include the Mishkat Interactive Center for Atomic and Renewable Energy; ; exhibitions for K.A.CARE and Saudi Aramco; and a destination activation plan for the Saudi Ministry of Economy and Planning.
