Cat Fitzgerald became involved with GreenHomeNYC in 2002 while doing research on green and sustainable products and furnishings for an independent art curator. She was excited to discover that ecologically responsible design was becoming increasingly important to the next generation of artists and designers (and that was before the recent green explosion). She has enjoyed continuing her self-education in all things green through GreenHomeNYC’s forums and open houses. In her other time Cat is a customer experience consultant and analyst, working hard to make websites easier for people to use. She was also the co-founder of August Press, an art book publishing company, and was previously an editor and publisher of Blind Spot, a New York City-based photography magazine. A graduate of Vassar College with a degree in Art History, Cat has an incurable case of wanderlust and loves to hike, surf, take pictures and get out for fresh air as often as possible.
