DANIELA SÁNCHEZ is a designer with extensive experience working with creative communities, including groups of young and upcoming artists, indigenous artisans, and various environmental causes. Originally from Bogotá, Colombia, her passion for art and culture has caused her to be relentless in the pursuit of new learning opportunities – she holds a degree in Industrial and Product Design from Universidad Del Bosque, and also studied at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. Thanks to the cultural enrichment acquired through her studies and travels, Daniela is constantly in search of new opportunities to be involved in the creation of innovative material in photography and painting – two other of her great passions. Ultimately, she sees art as an invitation to generate new bonds of friendship between different cultures by breaking down the language barrier and allowing individuals to see the beauty and diversity of the world’s colors.

ABIGAIL PACHECO was born and raised in the Bay Area in California. She is currently starting her sophomore year of college as a psychology major and marketing minor at San Diego State University. Abigail loves being able to find art and tasty food wherever she travels, both of which inspire her on a daily basis. She hopes to bring new ideas and creativity to the company and is excited to have this opportunity to help advance San Diego’s unique culture landscape.
