Stylish+Geek was created in 2012, but its initial roots started with two blogs called ‘CaraOnSugar’ and ‘Sensible Stylist’, who were both on the Popsugar network. When its founder, Cara Wong, became one of the LuckyFABB (Fashion and Beauty Bloggers event by a former CondeNast publication Lucky Magazine) bloggers, she merged both blogs and narrowed her niche to Lifestyle and Technology.
Stylish+Geek has grown to be a digital media platform and e-commerce site. While majority of its posts are organically created from the writer’s lifestyle experience, it has also began to work with Blogging communities, Advertising agencies, & Consumer-brand companies to create a customized sponsored content that showcases the product while still depicting the unbiased opinion and personal experience of the writer.
Cara started working at the age of 16 as a fashion, print, and TVC model. She won a national Ford Models competition called Supermodel of the Philippines. And three years later she coveted the Miss Philippines title and placed in the Top 10 at the Miss World pageant. She has been represented by Ford Models/Grimme, STARS San Francisco, CalCarries Hong Kong, Elite Hong Kong, and the Professional Models’ Association of the Philippines (PMAP).
She finished her undergraduate studies at the University of California at Berkeley and pursued a career in broadcast journalism. She became a news anchor, producer, reporter, and TV personality. She has been represented by ABS-CBN Global and Genesis Manila.
After settling down to have a family, Cara switched careers to quality assurance and technical communications. She is PMP, MPM, and Six Sigma Greenbelt certified, and currently holds a management role in a medical device company. Once in awhile she is tapped to host Television events and act in television commercials.
In her spare time, Cara continues to improve her creative skills in writing, digital art, photography, ceramics, and graphic design through a combination of evening courses and self-study.
In 2012 Cara decided to combine her interests and experience into a lifestyle and technology blog called Stylish+Geek. This platform features stories on home, personal style, hobbies, DIY, travel, food, digital tools, and gadgets.
