Entrepreneurship isn’t just something I’ve “wanted to try.” It’s innately who I am, it’s what makes me happy and it’s what I will do for the rest of my life.

Ever since I could remember, I’ve always dreamt about starting my own company. It began with wanting my own haute couture clothing brand—I learned to sew at the age of 7 so that I can start making my own clothes.

When I was in high school, I would buy designer handbags during end-of-season sales and resell them at 100% markup on eBay.

In college, I was obsesse with building SEO blogs and monetizing through Google AdSense and brand sponsorships.

In grad school, I learned how to optimize my graphic design skills into building mobile UI/UX.

After I graduated, I went through a series of juggling different startup ideas—creating prototypes, forming teams, meeting angel investors—all while working as a freelance UI/UX designer. Eventually, I became so good at building prototypes that my freelancing became a full time job and then eventually a full fledged business.

Today, I run a successful UI/UX design business that has been consistently growing for the last two years. I’m also launching another startup to connect freelancers in the fashion and production industry to brand owners and casting directors.

Founded in November 2014. Wander is my UI/UX company that I started while I was a full-time freelance designer.

Today, Wander is a 5 member global team. We’ve worked with startups from all over the world, most of which have gone to raise VC capital using our designs.

Trendi

Founded in May 2016. Trendi is a web and mobile platform for freelancers in the fashion and production industries, such as photographers, models and makeup artists to find jobs nearby.

I started this company to help freelancers find a safer and more reliable alternative than Craigslist to find fashion and production day jobs that meet their scope of expertise.
