Who am I?
Hi. I'm Rebecca (Becca, Becs, Reboobca, anything but Becky will do.) Nine times out of ten, you'll catch me wearing either a denim or mustard jacket. Not because I don't know how to do laundry, I'm just a creature of habit.
Bread is my love language.
Podcasts are my drug of choice.
My pronunciation of “Cesar Chavez” inevitably comes out as “Seizure Chavez.”
If I suddenly slip into a British accent, it means I like you.
Growing up, I always thought I’d be an engineer. I was raised by Taiwanese immigrant parents so, go figure. It wasn’t until my junior year of high school in my engineering class that I decided the numbers 1 and 0 added no color in my life. That same year advertising found me through an English teacher who was an alumni of the Texas Creative sequence. She showed me her portfolio, and I fell in love with the idea of creating big ideas. Today, my interest resides in bringing human experiences in the form of storytelling to make the world more empathetic and understanding of others.
