About me

I'm an architecture student in my final year, with a passion for graphics, illustration and journalism. I am originally from the Philippines, and am now living in Oxford, United Kingdom. In my free time I love to draw, make typographic illustrations, fulfil my travel bucket list, read, and experiment with digital media.
