Introduction — Hello, I’m Amelia

Hello, I’m Amelia. I’m originally from Houston, TX and am ethnically Singaporean (really small country, there are very few of us).

I received my Bachelor of Arts at Washington University in St. Louis, where I was pre-med for many years but ultimately graduated early to attend law school. My first year of law school was spent in New York, but I spent the last 2 years commuting between D.C. and NYC for jobs and school, receiving my J.D. from American University.

My background includes internships at a record label, fashion company, cancer research center, and an intellectual property law firm. Recently, I left my position as an attorney at a large law firm to become General Counsel at an arts organization. I made this move in order to transition into a creative and technical profession — ultimately design.
