About Us

We believe that making real connection is the ultimate contribution, and OuiSi is an expression of this calling. We are so excited and honored that you might bring OuiSi into your home. Curious about "how" we think about connection? Check out our blog called "How We See: A Blog on Connection." We write about topics like empathy and mindfulness, to explorations of artists and photographers who explore connections in their own unique way.

Who We Are

Paul Brillinger is a Brooklyn-based photographer/maker focused on enabling co-creation, play and mindfulness in our world. He has mathematics degrees from both University of Waterloo and University of Toronto, but has spent more and more of his life dedicated to creative pursuits. You'll find him working away on his laptop in one of NYC's many cafes, taking in as many plays and concerts as possible, or exploring the lesser-known pockets and streets of New York. Find him on Instagram at @pelbee.

She also has a background across media platforms, and loves storytelling and communication in all forms.
