This is me
By now you know my name and the many things I do. Somethings you do not know about me however are the following: I love to dance, I once walked into a mountain lion while hiking, I make some mean chilaquiles, I am highly competitive when it comes athletics, I spend my Sundays cleaning up the beach, if I had an intro song it would be In the Stone by Earth, Wind, and Fire, and the reason why I studied architecture was because as a kid I told myself I would design and build my parents a home as a way of showing my gratitude for all they have sacrificed and done for me and my sisters.
I am a gentle soul overflowing with optimism, creativity, and ambition. I am an upbeat and happy ambivert that loves people, but recharges alone. I am an environmentalist that is always looking for innovative ways to collaborate with others and help create generational sustainable futures. I strive to inspire, uplift, and empower everyone I cross paths with in life and value friendships to be worth much more than gold.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to connect with you.

2015 - PRESENT | OAKLAND, CA
Currently, I organize and lead a team that consist of software developing, business strategy, creative design, copywriting and marketing. I manage and maintain the company's external and internal framework. As the creative director I come up with visual ideas and conceptualize them meaning, I give birth to the ideas then turn them into reality. I use my visual skill to oversee the process that brings the idea to life. I collaborate with developers to define problems and goals and manage a wide variety of cross-media projects involving branding, illustrations, UX/UI wireframes and user flows, concept sketches, user and design research, visual design, product design, community outreach, and communications. I oversee web and mobile prototyping, cross-platform marketing, and maintain the internal style guide.
