GoofyMe

I'm a Filipino-American raised in San Antonio, Texas. My design and illustration work focuses on intentional systems, charming communication, and engaging education.

While I continue to grow in my career and craft, I also pursue ways to stay true to my values. As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I find fulfillment in providing education and opportunities to other designers. I act on this by volunteering my time online through portfolio reviews, career advice, and the occasional presentation to my alma mater's classes.

In my free time, I binge video games, casually watch anime, sing too loud in the car, and play with my Pomeranian son, Charlie.
