Introduction
My name is Kayla. I'm an imaginative graphic designer turned blogger. I love blogging about productivity and manage two blogs all about it: 

Productivity Theory is all about being productive, healthy and inspired.
Productivity Bytes is for the tech nerd in me, and geared specifically toward using tech to boost your productivity in life. 

I also love contributing my insights and ideas to my favorite websites. Most notably, I am a contributing writer at The Huffington Post, Lifehack, MakeUseOf and Tiny Buddha. 

On a more personal note, I'm a sucker for cute animals and I love to watch anime and play video games. I greatly enjoy studying different cultures, especially that of Japan.

Follow me on Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Twitter to get updates on all of my latest articles!
Bragging rights
