Kristy Okada

Product Designer at Facebook

Based in Oakland, CA

I am currently working on the Creator Well-being team on Instagram Direct. I am energized by developing a thoughtful product strategy that is focused on solving true people problems. I enjoy working collaboratively with my team to define a vision and figuring out the right milestones to drive towards that vision.

Prior to living in the Bay Area, I spent a few years in Austin, TX working in design agencies. I also started a design community called fresh2design, an organization committed to empowering and promoting inclusivity within design. In four years, I helped grow that community to over 2,000+ designers. 

In my free time, I enjoy cooking, eating breakfast tacos, bouldering, and performing improv comedy.
