Cat Zeng


Hi! My name is Cat, short for Catherine. I enjoy figuring out how things work and also learning about weird things. My biggest fear is to live a boring life. I care about my friends & family. In general I like making people smile.

I am working on Flairr with Zack, which lets you create a personal website from your phone. Flairr is very important to me, and my goal is to allow anyone to have an internet presence that they are proud of... that is easy to update as well.

My dream is to build amazing technology that behaves like "magic"... because under the hood, it's built with love, hard work, and attention to detail.
