My Story

Hello! My name is Mizel delos Santos, aka DLSMIZEL, and I am a passionate multimedia artist based in Metro Manila, Philippines. With more than a decade of work experience in various industries, I have developed a strong passion for problem-solving, collaborating with people, and creating effective designs.

My interest in art began at a young age when my father introduced me to painting landscapes using simple brushes and watercolors. He taught me how to mix colors, form shapes, and maintain a clean workspace. As a child, I spent most of my time drawing anime characters on notebooks and textbooks. My father even became my art teacher in grade 5. Since then, I knew that expressing my feelings through art is what I wanted to do when I grew up.

Years later, I pursued my passion by majoring in Multimedia Arts in college. During my studies, I learned various skills, including technical drawing, animation, photography, video, web design, and more. Although I initially focused on painting, I eventually shifted my attention to design.

Currently, I work as a Business Development Manager at Lanex Corporation, where I dedicate my time to solving client problems and learning from them. This is the best full-time job I have had so far because of the “work from anywhere” flexibility and the fantastic team I am a part of.

In addition to my full-time job, I am a member of JCI Manila and The American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, Inc. This is a group where I can network, collaborate, and work with great people. I also teach students online at Kirirom Institute of Technology (KIT), which is a leading Science and Technology University in Southeast Asia with a commitment to green development and a multicultural community. I am excited about this opportunity to share my knowledge with students and learn more about Cambodia’s culture.

I love exploring different ideas online and getting perspectives from other designers. Whenever I hear people talking about their ideas, I get excited and always say, “Let’s do it!” Overall, I am passionate about art, problem-solving, and collaborating with people to create effective designs.
