I have been living in New York for almost a decade after coming here for college. I studied Hotel and Tourism Management but now have a professional graphic design background with a mix of other experiences. Originally, my family is from the Philippines but I grew up in the United States, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Japan as well.
I love to try many different ways of making and take classes when I can. Most recently (pre-pandemic) I took a flameworking class and loved it. I’ve also spent time at the Textile Arts Center and learned how to do a bit of weaving and other textile crafts as well. I have been doing a lot of bread baking lately, which has been great to learn during this time. I love to eat dumplings of any form (dim sum type dumplings, pierogis, empanadas, etc.) and am looking forward to learning how to combine electronics with other soft skills and improving my making abilities.
