Hi! It's nice to meet you.

I'm Nate Kadlac, a digital product designer based in Los Angeles, California.

I grew up in Minnesota, where I spent a lot of my time creating art, designing, taking photos, and building side hustles since I was 16. (The first being to photoshop exes out of family photos.)

Early on, I co-founded the first mobile public transit app for Metro Transit (without permission), designed the first news app for Minnesota Public Radio, as well as the first mobile checkout experience for Best Buy.

Since moving west to California with my wife in 2014, I've been helping build HomeSpotter since the early days. We provide real estate agents growth tools to foster a better buying and selling experience.

While I might be lazy keeping my portfolio up to date, you can always see some of my work on Dribbble.

I've also been a part of a number of failed startup ideas like Keep or Burn, Rifr, and Deals.by. But, I love to build. Can't stop; won't stop.

My down time is spent reading, camping, snowboarding, taking care of our fur-babies, and trying to maintain my 3-min blitz chess score above 1400. (Spoiler alert: it's not easy.)

Looking for momentum? So am I.

On Sundays, I share stories that I've been reading to help you maintain momentum. I know I need it. It's called Plan Your Next, and I'd love to have you.

Yes! Welcome to Plan Your Next!
Yikes, that didn't work. Bad design, Nate.
