About Me

I'm a graphic designer currently doing marketing/branding/advertising in mobile game development. I used to practice my handwriting every summer as a kid and my dad was a traditional sign painter, so my love for hand lettering runs deep (though I'm still very much a novice) which leads me to this site! I got back into journaling earlier this year and all the trappings involved in it and I miss the days when I used to get letters from my cousins in other countries as a kid, so this seems like a cool way to recapture some of that joy. Feel free to check out my Instagram linked above to get an idea of what I'm into!

Favorite Crafts

I write daily in my journal and love to decorate the pages with washi tape, stickers, and ephemera. My style goes anywhere from kawaii to vintage.

Besides that I like to mess around with hand lettering, writing letters, mail art, paper crafts, and collaging.

I tend to like found object ephemera rather than the printed stuff that you can buy in stores. I'll be much more interested in stuff like wrappers of your favorite candy if you're from outside of the US than a die cut with "Live Laugh Love" on it or a similar sentiment. :)

Favorite Music

I grew up listening to hip hop and soul/R&B so those will always be forever loves, but as I've gotten older I've gotten into other genres like house, rock, alternative, classical, and jazz.

I try to go to live shows regularly since I live near a major US city where artists always come to tour, it's one of my favorite things to do! It's a bit terrifying how well Spotify's algorithm works, but I discover a lot of new music I dig on there as well.

Favorite Television

Breaking Bad

Mr. Robot

Westworld

The Handmaid's Tale

The Great British Bake-Off

Pose

Watchmen

Favorite Books

The Red Tent by Anita Diamant

Lamb by Christopher Moore

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Comfort Woman by Nora Okja Keller

Her Wild American Self by M. Evelina Galang

Likes

Snoopy and Woodstock, Sanrio, Sailor Mercury, video games, Orangetheory, dining out, Star Wars, photography, reading anything and everything, boring anyone within earshot about the importance of good kerning in typography, love cute weird stuff, and sometimes just weird stuff, vintage paper and ephemera, and anything that comes off as super "designy": excellent typography, graphic shapes, clean lines, that kind of stuff. But, my style is really all over the map.

Dislikes

I consider myself pretty easy to please, but generally can't get into the following:

• herbal tea (but love black and green teas)

• pre-printed quotes/sentiments ("Live Laugh Love" type stuff)

• journal cards (no use for them)

• anything with glitter

• fabric/ribbon/lace

Comment: The envelope sure took it's time through the postal system - it looks like it got mis-directed and went on a detour. You packaged things so neatly and in a nicely decorated envie. Thanks for all the forms.

Comment: I love this stationery you used. I am totally recycling it for my journal! The backside is so pretty! Did you use stamps to number the pages? I love that ink color! Thank you for the stickers too! <3 <3 <3
Response: I've been wanting to use that letter set for ages, but it's hard to find the right time as my usual pen pal letters are really long. Glad you enjoyed it! Yes, the numbers were stamped. :)
