Area of interest: Conceptual research, project communication, and branding.

Future/ideal work: Working with other creatives that can enjoy Happy Hour as much as I do.

Why design? I didn' know Graphic Design was a thing until Spring of 2015. An elective design course at Cuyahoga Community College was my preview of sleep deprivation with good reasoning—design on!

Goals in 5 years: Design and produce a cereal box called “TYPO’s” that serves juxtapose happiness for breakfast.

Inspirations: Four blank white-walls in my studio space really helps apply meaningful inspiration to my own work.

Hobbies: Have you ever gotten fancy for a night out of Salsa, Bachata and Merengue dancing? Let me know when you’re ready. (;

Favourite Reruns: Friends, That 70’s Show, Top5s (YouTube), and Black Mirror.

Favourite Games: Super Smash Bros (N64 & Melee), Call of Duty (PS3: CHiTO_McBOOM), and going to Cleveland's 16-Bit Bar+Arcade.

Design items u cannot live without: 0.9mm Mechanical Pencil, 5.5 in. x 8.5 in. Sketchbook, Apologies to my X-Amount of Flash Drives still missing, InDesign and Lightroom to adjust my sad White Balance.

"Latino designer with a non-hispanic first name. Here's to being an anomaly. ¡Salud!."
