About Me

Hello, I’m Kely Sarmiento.

I’m Colombian. Germany’s my second home. I love ajiaco, Arab food and passion fruit. I hate eggplant. Like many fellow introverts, I have a horror of small talk. I’m a compulsive book shopper and hoarder. I drive whenever people promise not to press charges. I’ve been a poet, knitter, community builder, market and design researcher, career coach, communications and public relations liaison, graphic designer and promoter of entrepreneurial and innovation culture. Now, I’m in Sri Lanka teaching English. Everything I do goes something like this, this and this.

I have a BA in Anthropology and an MA in Social Anthropology from Universidad de los Andes (Bogotá), as well as an MSc in Spatial Design from UCL (London).

I believe in  service, genuine understanding, diversity, community and fulfilling work.

Get in touch if you have comments, questions, want to work together or just say hello..
