Hey, I'm Shai, but sometimes I'm called Noogie. I'm 21 years old, Pinoy, gay, and nonbinary (they/he). I like the color pink, but shaipink also means Shai P. Ink!

Born Year of the Dragon and raised in the SF Bay Area. Currently attending Uppsala University in Sweden. My interests include role-playing games, linguistics, and street fashion. I used to like hockey, but it's on thin ice.

I am an illustrator and concept artist, with a focus on characters and storytelling. Ludonarrative harmony is my goal in designing games. Right now, I create graphics for student projects.
