I Try DIY | About

About me

Hello, my name is  Mikko.

I make things. I write stuff. And, I surely do talk a lot. I created this space for me to share all sorts of things that don’t seem to belong on any of my other sites.

I have spent the last few years bouncing around the Pacific Ocean. I’ve been designing handwritten fonts, building websites, creating oracle decks, holding craft events, writing books, teaching ESL, support creatives with their businesses, and doing HR consultant work. I do the hard work that simplifies yours.

I create and sell my own handwritten fonts, and other digital assets on Mix Fonts.

I craft. I teach workshops, sell craft supplies and write books on all sorts of crafts. DIY-ing instead of buying over at I Try DIY.

I co-founded Make Space Today. We support Creatives by providing them with the skills and tools they need to help their businesses succeed and thrive.

I help Creatives and Small Businesses with their websites by providing affordable domain & hosting services through Any Day Design.

I design and sell a line of Oracle Decks over at #NoFilter and Mga Baraha.

Lastly, I’m a certified Human Resources Professional. I got letters after my name for just that—Mikko Sumulong, PHR, SHRM-CP. I specialize in HR Technology, Process Documentation and Training & Development.

While I never run out of things to do, I still manage to squeeze in all sorts of crazy fun. I love to travel. I love trying new things. I’m always chasing thrills. And that, more than anything, is what you’ll find me talking about here.
