My goal is to find new ways to be productive and to help others do the same.
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
Top contributor on Lifehack for my article, "10 Reasons Why Adults Who Play Video Games Are Happier" (which has since earned 17K shares); Made it to the Front Page of HuffPo with "9 Ways Pets Improve Our Lives" (14K shares); Was once Tweeted at by Ashton Kutcher
