Christel is a recent graduate from the Industrial and Product design program at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and currently works as a freelance industrial designer in Chicago.

Originally from the Philippines, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her undergraduate degree in Business Administration and a minor in Animation and Digital Arts at the University of Southern California. After working in the marketing department of several firms, she discovered that her interests fell mostly in the product creation (rather than sales) side of the business process. She decided to pursue this by enrolling in the Industrial and Product Design Graduate program at the University of Illinois at Chicago and is in the process of developing and improving her design thinking and craft. 

When she is not working on work-related projects, she can be found preoccupied with personal fun craft or illustration projects.
