Hey there! I'm Kristeen Romero
and I am so happy that you’re here! 🙂
Digital platforms are changing quickly every day. One small tweak in the system and BAM! Certain features are missing, targeting options have been replaced, image size requirements changed, etc. etc. Before you know it, communication strategies that worked yesterday no longer work today!
Understandably, it can all get pretty overwhelming.
With so much going on in the digital realm, I think it’s important to stop. To stop and think about the bigger picture – what everything you’re doing means in the long run. Although it’s impossible to predict everything in the future, that’s no excuse to keep running with whatever trend others are telling us to get on.
I want to use this blog as a platform for us to contemplate and introspect on the realities within the digital industry – with a focus on digital marketing, online content and modern management. I want to be the master of my own digital destiny, reflect on my own journey.
I hope my experiences can help you on your journey too.
Who am I?
I’m a Certified Digital Marketer (see my certificate!) with a specialty in content strategy and multimedia content creation, and a passion for branding and storytelling. I’ve been working in digital marketing since 2016, but have been a content creator on a variety of social media for over 8 years.
As a Filipino born and raised in Hong Kong, I’ve grown up multi-culturally and surrounded by many languages — English, Tagalog, Hindi, Cantonese, Japanese to name a few. My struggle to understand the diverse individuals around me has brought me to love “hacking” my way through language and finding new methods or mediums of effectively communicating ideas. I always get super happy when I’m able to facilitate understanding in ways others could not.
Though I started blogging at the age of 9, I only started creating content seriously in 2009 when I decided to upload singing covers on YouTube. Since then, I’ve continuously been polishing my skills in audio, video and photo editing, as well as taking on freelance writing jobs here and there. I’ve recently been diving into photography and video production, and am having tons of fun with it!
This blog and PanickedPixel are side projects for continuously practicing my digital skills and exploring new ones. Life’s too short to not be improving! 😀
