Hope is a waking dream.

Do you know that feeling when you're staring off into the distance, music crooning, and Greta Gerwig is in the background directing the movie of your life? Same.

Hi, my name is Amanda and I really like combining strategy and art at just the right angle. I’m the daughter of immigrants and grew up in an Asian grocery store - yeah, I was the middle schooler tip toeing behind the register. Graduated with an Ad degree, moved across the country because I felt like it, and now trying to trick everyone into thinking I’m a grown up.
