Hi! It's nice to meet you.

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

Since moving west to California with my wife in 2014, I joined HomeSpotter as an early employee. There, I lead user experience and product design, which was then acquired in May '21 by Lone Wolf Technologies.

You can view some of my projects here, or on Dribbble.

Between 2008-2014, 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.

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.

In my free time, I co-host a weekly podcast called It's Gotta Be the Mic. Outside of that, you'll find me reading, camping, snowboarding, taking care of our fur-babies, and trying to maintain my 3-min chess score above 1400. (Spoiler alert: it's not easy.)

Yikes, that didn't work. Bad design, Nate.
