Graphic Designer Philippines

I started out as a Training and Marketing Associate at a training/seminar & events company. There I developed an inclination towards designing presentations and other documents. I worked online via Odesk.com and also started my own handmade accessories shop since then.

After almost a year of self-employment, I joined Human Nature Cainta and Pasig branch. I worked as a Marketing Officer, handling their social media and other external marketing activities.

I am currently employed part-time as a Literacy Teacher in a reading clinic in Quezon City and I am managing a small zero-waste oriented business on the side.

I am also into self-improvement, mindful living, religious and inspirational materials, pursuing one’s dreams, non-fiction books, movies, music, and certain TV shows. I am drawn to design, art, crafting, the environment, and helping people in any way I can. I like to hike and dive.
