Writer

Back at BCIT I was an Associate Editor of Link BCIT Magazine and was responsible for collaboratively creating an engaging and relevant student publication. Responsibilities also included writing out articles, recruiting contributors, guiding them and editing their work. Iโ€™ve also written a few Medium articles and something I'll pursue again.

Board Game Nerd

Large or tiny boxes of joy that live on my shelves singing it's sirens calls, my collection waits impatiently to be woken up in slumber. Recently I've begun my conquest on the biggest, baddest, funnest collection around and will play these boxes of joy's during lunch to appease my card board rulers. Marie Kondo would approve.

Cooking Nerd

I love testing recipes for weekly meal prep and have a knack for staying late on my phone watching how to videos on different meals. I love staying in the kitchen, creating my own yogurt and granola and I have a mighty good Pad Thai recipe.

1:1 Mentoring

Iโ€™ve been mentoring since 2018 and would love to meet up with you if you have any questions regarding after post-secondary development or any design related questions you might have. I also love to teach Photoshop and Sketch to fellow peers.

Moment Capturer

I held my first camera when I was 6 on a European trip with my parents and havenโ€™t stopped taking photos ever since. From travel, graduation and family portraits to owning my own headshot business and running Convertus' Humans of Convertus photo series, thereโ€™s never a moment finer than one captured through a lens.

Meditation Practicioner

Practicing daily meditations since 2018 has skyrocketed my productivity, clarified my life goals, amplified my attention to detail on daily projects, and giving me energy to sustain my working days. Iโ€™ve also led meditation groups within my workplace two times a week.

Worldly Travels

Iโ€™ve travelled to 21 countries and have learned so much about cultures and getting out of my comfort zone. Iโ€™ve taken solo trips that have given me inspiration, creativity and learning how to be comfortable alone.

Half Elf Cleric, Tiefling Bard, Halfling Ranger, Air Genasi Monk turned Sorcerer

Actively playing four D&D campaigns friends and conquering bad guys. Yes those are by different characters above and yes itโ€™s consumed most of my life. Related pop culture examples include: Community S2 Ep14, any Stranger Things episode.

Classifying Music

Listening to ranges of music in Alternative R&B, Pop and Soul. Frank Ocean, Tyler the Creator, Amy Winehouse, Childish Gambino and Jack Johnson. Basically Iโ€™ll listen to anything else except 2 Country songs. I used to also sing in the choir, was part of a band and repetive Lofi Hip Hop or design podcasts while I work.

Anything fashion-related

I love taking people out on shopping trips, giving them style pointers and hair doโ€™s that matches their own personality. Feel free to follow my Pinterest for some seasonal inspiration for your own wardrobe.

Lifting Weights Repeatedly

As the title implies, I like to go to the gym three times a week and get pumped.
