My name is Carina and I’m based in the Philippines. I have a fondness for mountains and One Direction, unabashedly. Okay, maybe a little abashedly.
I write a column for The Philippine Star’s Young Star called Quiet Company and am currently working at CNN Philippines Life as an art director of sorts.
This is kind of where I live.
About Nothing Spaces
Nothing Spaces started as a place to do more long-form blogging (vs. Tumblr reblogs/Twitter vomit) and a place to document my process as I was working on my senior thesis for my undergraduate degree in 2009. It has evolved a lot from that, and I don’t actually end up writing about my thesis very much.
Selected Press, or stuff that makes me look like I’m important, probably:
