Hey, I’m Jan.
I’m a designer living in sunny Southern California. I previously designed at Automattic, makers of WordPress. Prior to that, I designed at SendGrid and NationBuilder.
I’ve been designing professionally for 15 years. I was born and raised in the Philippines. In 2011, I was invited by SendGrid to come to the US to work as the company’s first designer, and I’ve been living here since with my husband, our energetic toddler, and our Terrier mix, Beans.
