About Me

Hello, I’m Kely.

I’m from the Caribbean Coast of Colombia. I love ajiaco, Arab food and all things ginger. I hate eggplant. Like many fellow introverts, I have a horror of small talk. I’m a compulsive book shopper and collector, guilty of not reading enough fiction. I’ve been a poet, knitter, community builder, community manager, market and design researcher, resume coach, communications and public relations liaison, graphic designer and promoter of entrepreneurial and innovation culture. I recently came back from Sri Lanka, where I taught English to students from all over Asia, something that I’ve continued to do in Bogotá. Everything I do goes something like 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). Work that matters to me revolves around diversity, community and fulfilling work. These are the things I believe in.

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

About this site

It’s in the works and definitely in Spanglish.

aycositalindamamá was a compilation that became a weekly newsletter of things I find beautiful, enlightening or elevating in some way. Artists, ideas, organizations, podcasts, communities, magazines, collectives and websites I love went in there.

Welcome 🙂
