Creative Innovator & Visual Strategist, San Juan, PR

Download Resume

Born and raised in the shores of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Studied Communications Design in Syracuse University in upstate New York.

Moved to NYC to work in a branding agency (CBX) and lived in a warehouse in Brooklyn (like every other young designer in New York). 
Quit the NYC agency job, started freelancing full-time, and went backpacking for six months.
Turned my freelance work into a fully operating nomadic design studio with designers working together from all over the world, called HIYO DESIGN.

Moved to sunny (and warm) Miami, but visit NYC regularly.
Continue to happily balance creative design work
with time spent hiking, traveling, walking my adorably hyperactive dog, and lounging on the beach.
