Outside of work, Kat and her team runs Toronto chapter of Draw By Night - a collaborative drawing event that brings together designers, illustrators, students, and all sorts of art enthusiasts.

In 2017, she co-authored and published a book "Dating Vandalized", based on her social experiment of outsourcing online dating routine to a hired stranger.
