Hi, I'm a CD/AD based in Los Angeles. For the last ten years I've been helping brands create emotional connections with their multicultural audiences. I love ideas that bring people closer together.

My career in advertising just turned eighteen which not only means it can finally vote, but it also means plenty of experience in independent advertising agencies, multinational networks and content companies in the U.S. and Latin America.

One of my first jobs was as an art teacher, I really enjoyed helping others reach their potential. And as a Creative Director, that's one of the most rewarding aspects of my job: providing the environment so creatives can thrive and make their best work.

On the weekends, I play guitar and go mountain biking, but not at the same time.

Brands: Got Milk?, Chick-fil-A, Comcast Xfinity, State Farm, Ford, Clorox, Claro and Telemundo, among others.

Awards: One Show Entertainment, New York Festivals, Jay Chiat, Effies, Addys, USH, FIAP and Ojo de Iberoamérica.
