Carly Chan

HI, I'M CARLY!

I'm a marketing and design enthusiast currently working on marketing strategy and innovation for LEGO BrickLink, while studying full-time at the University of California, Irvine.

 

I'm passionate about product marketing and brand management work where I can collaborate with others to make products and experiences more joyful and accessible for people around the world!

 

In my free time, I also enjoy:

+ Visiting museums (25+ last year!)

+ Sending snail mail to my pen pals 💌

+ Discovering a newfound love of outdoor concerts (most recently: Joe Hisaishi!)

 

I'm always down to chat — feel free to reach out on LinkedIn!
