About Kat Dakota

When asked “what did you want to be as a child”, I must say, “what I am now – though I didn’t know it then.  I didn’t know you could be so many things.”

Following my artistic dream in the first years of college, I studied ceramics and theatre, but later decided a Bachelor’s of Science in TV production would provide a larger paint brush for opportunities.  Which it did.  Directing on-camera talent, designing production stages, writing scripts, producing educational and marketing materials, creating digital media and editing video programs and commercials became my palette of skills.

In 2009 I moved to Suttons Bay where I established Kat Dakota Design a DBA of DakotaDoDat.

I offer promotional and marketing services including creative consultation, graphic design, computer illustration, script and copy writing, website design, internet Content Management Systems training, book editing, digital painting and mural design.
