My passion for graphic design originally started out as just a hobby. Something I dabbled with for hours on the computer in the basement of my childhood home. Whether it was creating a birthday invitation or designing and coding up a new Asian Avenue page (the OG social networking site of my generation). I did whatever it took to learn how to make things look visually appealing.
There was just something about finding the right image and font then putting them together to evoke some sort of feeling that got me really excited.
Fast forward a few and a half years, armed with an undergrad degree in marketing plus diploma for graphic design and copious amounts of coffee consumed, I have turned my hobby into a career I love and enjoy.
Currently, I’m a full-time Design Strategist for Thrive Digital, a digital performance marketing agency. My 9-5 grind consists of conceptualizing ad creative for various clients, while at the same time pioneering the design process.
I believe a designer’s work is never done. There’s always room for improvement and growth. I’m constantly learning and eager to develop my skills by welcoming change and challenges in order to grow. Currently, I’m in the process of learning Adobe After Effects to add to my arsenal of skill sets.
When I’m not lost in design, I like getting in my daily gym time, re-watching Friends, getting lost between the pages of a good book or going on traveling adventures with family and friends.
