I'm a Los Angeles-raised Filipina visual designer with a love for making tactile pieces and interactive projects. I believe in three core values, in which I strive to be better at everyday: Kindness, Bravery and Respect.

The Moneypet is a short-term money saving contraption and calendar. Designed to discourage the user from spending the money they are saving, the box is designed to only be opened by unscrewing the sides. The Moneypet Kit is meant to be built by the responsible adult who will be using it and measures 8 x 5.5 x 5.5 inches when assembled. Using the supplemental calendar, keep track of your savings until you meet your goal and start over on a clean slate.

HIGHS & LOWS is a system of emotion graphics made for use in digital spaces. This project is based on a spectrum of emotions that people experience in the process of healing from heartbreak.

RHODOKHROS is a digital archive of a designer's visual and healing process.

"Tell me how you really feel" is a series of interactive posters created to be displayed on 24" x 36" LED Screens.
