Welcome Sandy!

23 February 2016

A big welcome to the newest Humaan and writer extraordinaire, Sandy Lim! A longtime friend, we’re really pleased to have Sandy join the team and extend our content, writing and tea drinking abilities. We asked Sandy our three questions below.

Welcome Sandy!

Tell us about yourself and how you got here.
When I was 13, my dad got us our first internet connection. Hundreds of dollars in dial-up and excess bandwidth charges later, I’m up til 3am learning how to make websites so I can publish my stories and crap teen poetry. I’ve done time in dev, design, product, content, UX – and now, I just write. 🙂

What are you most looking forward to?
Exploring new things with creative people. Then using what we learn to build cool stuff that can make a difference. And, most importantly, having fun.

What makes you Humaan?
A lovely partner, two cats, hobby room full of junksuppliestreasure, and an ever-growing wishlist of new adventures. Plus a weekly game of indoor football to keep me sane.
