Frequently Asked Questions

How did you get into design?
When I was 14 or so, I started playing around with the Adobe Creative Suite on my school computer. I Googled some tutorials on how to Photoshop famous advertisements and retouch photos. Then I got interested in After Effects; I put together introductions for my school news stations to show off my new skills. I eventually taught myself most of the tools and when I got to college had a 2.5-year internship with the Residential Life department where I got to hone my skills further. After college, I was able to use these design skills in my roles at AIESEC and while working at my startups. Now, I'm hoping to pursue design full-time.
What's your favorite country?
It's a hard choice between Australia and Colombia. Colombia has such amazing people and vibrant landscapes. Australia is also other-worldly beautiful but the food there is also pretty great because you've got excellent livestock and AMAZING Asian options. Overall, Australia wins by a hair.
Who's your favorite author?
Chelsea Handler. Have you read her books? Hilarious. In one of her books, she had her friends and family write essays about how she personally tormented them. She's absurd, rich, and living a life that makes very little sense - all of which I aspire to be one day.
