Alexandra Valenzuela


Colombian by way of Georgia (thanks to the awesome SCAD…) Alex brings her love of typography, organized chaos, and inquisitive research about global popular culture to the Memo team. Although she claims that arepas are her absolute favorite food on earth her recent meatball binge makes us think that her tastes might be changing now that she’s officially a New Yorker.


Anna Park


Korean by way of Vancouver, Anna brings a multi-cultural perspective to the office. Deeply versed in global popular culture, Anna keeps one eye on her phone and the other completely focused on the future. She also has an unexplained love for lasagna for lunch.
