ABOUT ME: I’m an experienced creative (both art direction and copywriting) and a proven creative manager. My forte is combining insightful strategic thinking with compelling creative ideas. I’ve led the conceptualization and creative execution of advertising efforts ranging from multi-million pan-regional efforts to AOR national campaigns to regional and local accounts. I’m fluent in English and Spanish.

My work has been awarded or shortlisted in The One Show, Telly, FIAP, Addys, AHAA, and Mobius. I’ve been a juror at several competitions including the 4As and Tellys, and have been a panelist in several professional conferences. I’ve also taught Typography, Graphic Design, and Advertising.
