Born in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Nina immigrated to the United States at the age of five.

Raised in Houston, TX, she eventually moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas at Austin where she carpe-diemed the heck out of her undergraduate experience – pursuing two degrees in Advertising and French Language and Literature, a minor in Brazilian Portuguese, a Bridging Disciplines certificate in Innovation, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship, was a part of the Liberal Arts Honors program, and studied abroad in Brazil and France.

Nina believes that creative work is a privilege that should be accessible to all. She’s passionate about promoting diversity and inclusion in entrepreneurship, technology, and the arts.

Whether she’s running collective blue or missfits, consulting companies on brand development and digital content strategy, pursuing fashion photography, producing events, or leading workshops, Nina finds joy in the act of doing and creating.

In her downtime, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, traveling (25 countries to date), reading, doing yoga, playing basketball, and cuddling with her adorable cats, Rumi and Rogue.
