I'm not your typical Chicano designer. Sure I went to school for architecture (on a full ride scholarship #grateful) and gained an immense amount of skills on that journey — which by the way ended with a solid moonwalk across the stage — but I learned so much more on my own by exploring the depths of my own curiosity and creativity. By leaping head first off the deep end into a world of passion and uncertainty I've grown in ways I never would have had I stayed "in my lane".
I started my own software company, I physically and digitally published my own children's books, I started my own T-shirt brand, I started my own podcast, I became a mixed media storyteller, I helped develop a food catering business, I helped bring together NBA All-stars to raise money for spinal injury and gun violence awareness, I provided creative direction for musicians, content creation for corporations, and through it all I failed and succeeded gracefully. I owe these experiences so much because through them I became unstoppable meaning, I've proven to myself that I can do anything I put my heart and mind to.
I persevere, that's just what I do.
I now work remotely as a visual designer, specifically for REI Co-op alongside an incredible team. On my spare time I work on my latest project which is a startup focused on hunger-relief, engage community through ocean cleanup initiatives, and indulge in dance, art, food, music, and travel.
