Hi there, I'm Kylyn, a Junior Art Director at Publicis. I believe that storytelling is the basis for almost everything in our society; the way we interact, build, communicate, and live all derive from it. There are stories to be mined that people can connect with; stories that capture the essence of each moment for the ideal purpose of advertising and film.

As a creative, I strive to create content for others but not so necessarily for myself (as you can tell from my bio).
