My full name is Masiel Tejada, but everyone calls me Masi. Both my parents were born in the Dominican Republic, but I was born and raised in New Jersey. My love for all things design emerged when I saw a commercial on TV about a college that offered the course. This commercial compelled me to apply to my local vocational high school with a major in graphic design.

I moved to Philadelphia to attend The Art Institute and have been a resident of the city ever since. My part-time job at UBIQ helped me get through college and also started my obsession with sneakers (I currently own over 50 pairs).

I'm currently the Email Marketing Specialist at Toll Brothers.
