Hi! I’m Monica Calderon

Monica CalderonI have worn many hats aside from designer. I was an assistant animator, graphic technician, teacher, team leader and manager in a fintech company and some years ago in my old hometown, even a dog breeder.

Now I have settled down with my wonderful husband in lovely British Columbia and spend most of my time working on building WordPress websites, side projects disguised as hobbies, and brushing up on my tech skills.

As an immigrant from the Philippines, I like connecting and working with fellow Filipinos in Canada.
