Who is Mia?

I am a full-time Design Consultant for Vistaprint, a mass customization platform. I assist in the production of print designs and handle direct, live consultations with customers. I use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop in my day-to-day work.

On the side, I write – a skill that I’ve been honing since childhood. I manage a few personal blogs, a Medium account, and The Writing Owl on Facebook. I am currently accepting writing commissions, academic essay requests (for ghostwriting), and pretty much any sort of writing assistance.

I love surfing. My long term goal is to work remotely as a writer so I can surf to my heart’s content.


I first sold short stories when I was in second grade. In college, I dipped my toes into freelance writing as a means to add to my daily allowance. The majority of my freelance/ghostwriting work focused on web content and e-book writing. The niche that I am currently targeting is academic writing.

I am a Bachelor of Arts degree holder from the University of the Philippines Diliman. In 2015, I was shortlisted for the Ateneo Art Awards – Purita Kalaw –Ledesma Prize in Art Criticism.


Commissions for academic and non-academic essays are welcome. Please send an e-mail to maadagsaan@gmail.com or send me an sms at (+63) 935 653 1335 so we can discuss your project!
