Diwa Fernandez-Velez

Hello! — I’m a freelance digital artist by day and gamer by night. I used to be a web designer and front-end developer for ten years. I am based in Taguig City, Philippines. Over the past decades, I’ve been juggling both design and front-end development since the beginning of my career (2001). I’ve worked in various companies and my longest was in local gaming companies — Level Up! Games & IP e-Games. Now, you know why I’m a gamer.
