Mayen Ondo arrived at Clickspring’s Austin office by way of the Philippines, Memphis, and the University of Texas at Austin. A designer with a mad set of computer skills, four languages, and a 2018 Bachelor of Architecture degree, Mayen managed to spend time during undergrad to work as an intern for Perkins + Will Chicago, study at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris-Belleville, mentor first year students, design a benefit fashion show, serve on student council, and volunteer in the Austin community. Oh, and all this as an honors student. On the negative side (since we insist on fair and balanced reporting) Mayen cannot swim. (Wait. Philippine Islands, right???)
When not exercising a myriad of computer-based design tools, Mayen is a fan of old-school drawing, painting and sketching, AND of 70s & 80s hits, which she will gladly perform off-key in a karaoke club. Concrete mixing is also listed as one of her skills, which CSD may or may not take advantage of. She is also the human of Pepper, the world’s most beautiful chihuahua-shih tzu. Mayen claims that everything we need to know about her can be described as “Enneagram Type 5” (Perceptive, Innovative, Secretive, and Isolated) but we have a feeling there is much more to be discovered.
