Who am I?

Editor, Writer, Creative Strategist

I am an editor, writer and content producer, and a fervent dream chaser. Born in Manila with a Scandinavian heart, I have lived in Sweden, Germany, Spain and currently, Holland. A creative writer and communications strategist with a flair for poignant words: I am here to bring character, inspiration and a sparkling story to your brand.

I love discovering new places, listening to music, taking in contemporary art and design, documenting memories and exploring the world. I love writing and sharing about these experiences in my personal newsletter Angel Magazine. I think fika (Swedish: a cozy time spent with friends, family or a loved one, with coffee and cake) is the best thing on earth!
