Hi. Hello. Nice to meet you.
I’m Angela. Copywriter. Cartoon doodler. 80s music lover. I obsess over sushi and steak. I Google partial lyrics to songs I hear. I enjoy reading books once and then criticizing their movie adaptations to no end. I half-smirk when people say “Valentimes.” I feel like a scholar when I know the final Jeopardy answer. Sometimes, I talk in accents when brainstorming. I have an affinity for baby pandas and hedgehogs. I admire people who are passionate. And I respect people who are pretty damn good at what they do.
Little secret: I was in the 2nd grade when I made my writing and illustrating debut. “Blue Blaze,” a story about a superhero who fought crime in a Crayola electric blue suit. It never made it to the best sellers list, but it did win me a set of scratch ‘n sniff stickers and Keroppi pencils.
Not so little secret: Once upon a time, I wrote and produced songs.
Where I’ve been. What I’ve done.
