Patricia Chong has jumped industries three times, going from media to PR to native advertising to digital marketing, but has done what she's always done: tell stories. The things that bring her most joy, though, are writing about art, finding great eats, and collaging under the tag @garbagecollager
Gelo Dionora works with words for a living. He’s worked in education, media, PR, and advertising, and somehow he has found a way to do all four simultaneously. No wonder he always needs coffee. Reach out to him on IG at @angelodionora.
