•I've lived half my life in the Philippines, and half my life in the San Francisco Bay Area

•I'm a proud plant parent of two

•I prefer gridded or dotted paper over blank or lined notebooks (that should tell you I like a lil bit of structure, but not too much)

•I write for Tagalikha, a platform that showcases Filipino makers and creatives
