Hi! My name is Catarina, but you can call me Cat. I am an engineering student very passionate about technology and arts. I believe that amazing things can happen when science meets art and that is exactly what drives me in my projects.

I find the Japanese culture fascinating. My first contact with it was ten years ago via the ancient art of paper folding, what you probably know as Origami. What I mostly like about it is that from a single piece of paper you can create fantastic artistic forms. Origamis can be used for a series of purposes. I love giving hand-made gifts to people close to me, and Origami suit as a great opportunity to express your love to others with something you had made yourself. They can also be used to add your personal touch to almost everything. I have my room decorated with bottled lucky starts, and it looks amazing, trust me!

I remember that when I was a beginner I found particularly difficult to follow book instructions. Nowadays, things are very different. There are so many places you can go to learn new stuff. I think knowledge is to be shared and I've decided teaching through Udemy because it offers me the possibility of creating amazing content in a coherent way. I will guide you visually through each step, making it easy and fun to practice the beautiful art of Origami.

I love learning new things, what about you? Are you ready to join me in this adventure?

“It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock’n’roll”. From the moment I crossed with this part of the lyrics, I knew it: AC/DC was giving me more than a good song. I am a dreamer, but also a tireless perceiver of new opportunities. I have a really hard time accepting limits, for they are only checkpoints to be surpassed. I chose to Rock and that means challenge. Fuel me. 

I have a crush on entrepreneurship and that means managing resources you don’t yet have along with performing multiple roles. I am an engineer student and I have worn many hats throughout my novice career – teacher, marketer, iOS developer, designer, financial analyst and project manager. 

Most recently, I have co-founded Pandalore. Through Udemy, we will be providing the best learning experience for those insterested in mastering the amazing art of origami. So, what are you waiting for? Join me in this journey.
