Nereya Otieno


Nereya never really grew up, per se. But she did get bigger in the San Francisco Bay Area during the wonderful time of tech savvy hippies consorting with nostalgic, story-telling Grateful Dead “dead heads” and retired funk greats of the 70s. She was raised in that time that ushered in female executives as a nonissue. These circumstances bred in her a curiosity for seeking out the unusual and cultivated an understanding when she found it.

She now uses her words and mind as her profession, exploring other countries and cultures to seek out the stories behind them. She harbors a passion for art and sandwiches and considers them one in the same. To summarize her succinctly, we should borrow from Dylan - “If you see her, say hello.”

She currently lives in Copenhagen, Denmark.
