Happy 2013 guys!


Have been living in San Francisco for almost 5 months now, I realize I've never actually explored California. One of my girlfriends, Ning, visited me 2 weeks ago and we went to tour Cali for ten days and it was one of my most amazing trips :)

When life gets hard...

Designed this card for a friend's school assignment the other day and I thought of posting it today because it's relevant to where I am right now. "When life gets hard, it just means that a strong person like you needs the challenge."

The Musee Mecanique

Discovered this hidden gem at the pier during the Thanksgiving break. Musee Mecanique is an old school arcade with mechanically operated musical instruments and vintage machines. I love this place so much.

My sis from Seattle visited San Francisco during this short Thanksgiving weekend and we had a great time together feasting and touring around the city. I brought her to my happy place, the Fisherman's Wharf. Our epic day includes going to every single chocolate and souvenirs store, shooting robots and zombies, spending almost an hour (??) at San Francisco Music Box Company drooling over the Christmas themed music boxes, banana nutella crepe, discovering a hidden gem (which has officially become my favorite place in SF) that is the Musee Mecanique (blog post will follow) and feasting dungeness crab for dinner. Epic day it is indeed.

SF Giants Parade

All I saw was hands in the air and the back of people's heads but it was fun.  

Facebook Timeline Covers

Designing Facebook timeline covers has always been my favorite thing.

ABC Bumper

Here's my final bumper animation for ABC. Decided to remove the previous three slides (Mystery, Drama & Comedy) and put the TV shows titles in the front to save time.

Visited Seattle last weekend for a short post-birthday getaway and I was amazed by the beauty and serenity of the city. Had a great time with my little sister too! I wish I could've stayed longer.

Have I told you how much I'm loving my neighborhood?

Palace of Fine Arts

This is now my new favorite place in San Francisco. I could sit here all day with an ipod and my camera.

San Francisco

I've recently moved to San Francisco and am loving the city so far although it's still a lot to take in. If you happen to live in San Francisco and you wanna talk typo, design, TV, indie music or looking for a partner to go out and take photos, hit me up!
