What does it mean to be Studio Design Manager?
As a studio creative, I seek to captivate audiences’ attention with my work. It involves conceptualizing something out of nothing, solving day-to-day creative problems, juggling multiple accounts, and being a nuanced individual. As a creative, I draw inspiration from everything around me and I constantly have my head in the clouds thinking of new ideas and creative feasibility. Every workday is different! I live by this quote: “To create is to live twice” – Albert Camus.

How would you describe yourself?
A true blue Libra, a dire fan of karaoke and always coloring outside the lines. I’m very easy-going so please don’t be shy and talk to me, I love making new friends! Outside of work, I like to dabble in both digital and film photography, as well as the occasional film making when I have the chance. My bucket list includes skydiving and visiting New York!

If you could switch positions with a colleague, who would it be and why?
Definitely with my account managers. I’m always intrigued by what they do and I think that being able to interact with new people and clients is a really good soft skill.

What’s your most useful skill?
Being able to crack jokes at any given time of day. My friends love my lame jokes as much as they hate to admit it. Thanks for coming to my Ted talk.

What’s the craziest object you have on your desk?
Probably my bottle of melatonin pills, because I constantly find myself struggling to fall asleep!

What do you like most about your job?
I love that every single workday is different and I get to design for brands I love! I also love the sense of satisfaction whenever I complete a campaign, knowing that I’m making an impact, sometimes even if it’s just a little dent 😊

Who’s your favorite historical character?
Lee Kuan Yew. A real-life David vs Goliath story…

And your favorite superhero?
Luke Skywalker. The character and the series taught me that with a little hope, you can change the world.

What can we find in your fridge?
Soy milk, dark chocolate and probably many other dairy free products (the woes of being lactose intolerant…). OH YES! and most definitely, a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc 😉
