Melissa is the founder of MELEWI, the Traveling Design Studio. She started it in 2012 when she unearthed her immense passion for design and travel. Shortly after, she discovered a similar love for the start-up world, and has since built a life and business around those three things. She believes that life is too short to spend boxed up in just one place, and has crafted some of her best work on boats in Cambodia, at cafes in San Francisco and on the beaches of the Maldives. The world is her greatest source of inspiration.
