Hi, I'm a CD/AD currently based in Los Angeles. I moved to the U.S. ten years ago and since then I've been helping brands create emotional connections with their multicultural audiences. I love finding relevant 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 US and Latin America.

One of my first jobs was as an art teacher. That’s when I learned the joy of mentoring and helping others reach their potential. And as a Creative Director, that's one of the most rewarding aspects of my job: providing the environment for creatives to thrive and have fun doing their best work.

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

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

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