About Me

SOME FUN FACTS

CONVERSATIONS I get most excited about usually have something to do with London, tech gadgets, productivity hacks, or social entrepreneurs. ON WEEKENDS, you're likely to find me testing out new recipes on my family, doing something active outdoors, or planning my next trip or event. I AM HAPPIEST WHEN things look great, work well, solve problems, and make me laugh.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • HOW DO YOU PRONOUNCE YOUR NAME? My name is properly pronounced as SEE’-ning, but I'm pretty forgiving when people get it wrong : )
  • WHAT DOES YOUR NAME MEAN? 'Thinking of peace’
  • NAME ONE OF YOUR VIRTUES? Tenacity: I am diligent and relentless when I set out to pursue something—whether it's the ‘perfect' handbag or the most elegantly crafted sentence.
  • GOT ANY VICES? Yes. I have a slight addiction to fonts, bulleted lists, British period dramas, and inspiring startup stories.
  • WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS? To successfully import British-isms like “faffing around” and “pop by” to the U.S. and provide everyone in the world with clean water.
