My work  

Hi there! I’m Kat Koh: career coach and writer living in San Francisco.

I help creative people get clear about their careers.

What you and I both know

A lukewarm career holds you back from fully loving your life. Of course it does, if you spend 40+ hours/week feeling tired and uninspired. 

Money can only buy so much.

A job is not just a job. Meaningful work is key to a fulfilling life. 

The "on paper" stuff

I've held curatorial positions at:
San Jose Museum of Art
U.S. Pavilion, 2012 Venice International Architecture Biennale
Brooklyn Museum

I got my MA in art history from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and dropped out of the Ph.D. program. 

I work for Seth Godin and have completed his acclaimed altMBA program. 

How I can help you

I help creative people like you get clarity and go from where you are → where you want to be in career and life. 


No, thanks

All of these are fine places to be, but working with me is not for you if: 

You're only looking for help editing your resume and applying to jobs.
You're content with where you're at in your career. 
You don't identify as a creative, nor do you want fulfilling, creative work.
You believe "a job's a job"—you put in the hours, and get on with your life. 
You're not totally ready for change, because change = a journey + stress

Yes, please

We might work well together if:

You're ready to step up and move forward. 
You want to make rarefied work that stands out. 

You want to stop feeling limited, overwhelmed, and distracted.
You want something you've never had, so you're willing do something you've never done.
