My name is Carina Santos and I am a creative based in the Philippines. I am a Libra, an INFP, a Type Four, and a middle child. I have a fondness for mountains and One Direction, unabashedly. Okay, maybe a little abashedly.
I write a column for Young Star called Quiet Company and am a Contributing Editor for Supreme, both of which are sections of The Philippine Star.

About Nothing Spaces
Nothing Spaces started as a place to do more long-form blogging (vs. Tumblr reblogs/brain farts) 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 much.
Instead, it has housed travel stories, personal crises, casual thoughts on pop culture, mostly. I try to write a lot about Philippine art, too, but I’m by no means an expert. Just an occasional admirer who likes to make sense of things by writing about them.
This isn’t really a niche blog or anything like that. I’ve realized pretty early on that I’m a person, not a brand, and if I was a brand, I’d have no idea what that would be anyway. So, this is essentially a distilled version of most things that I think about that actually make their way to a post.
