Buro Curious is a team of individual creators that as a collective create impactful experience designs for immersive experience, celebration events or brand activation. Each of us has their own unique quality and interest that contributes to the creation of memorable moments. 

“Experiencing something new can be overwhelming, so sometimes people need a little encouragement to willingly immerse themselves in the unknown. Creating the right circumstances to navigate the unknown and finding the sweet spot that sparks enjoyment and touches people is what inspires me to create.”
