My Story

I am from the small Central American country of Honduras, where I spent most of my childhood before moving to Miami and calling it home.

My undergraduate degree, as well as my Master’s Degree, brought me to the colder and unfamiliar climates of Boston, MA where I received a Bachelor of Science in Advertising (COM ’02) and a Master in Fine Arts in Graphic Design (CFA ’05) from Boston University. My teaching philosophy focuses on strategically solving problems in a creative and innovative way. I design courses that attempt to bring ideas to life with passion and a discerning eye for aesthetics – an approach that I have brought to this agency time and again.

I have with clients such as Nissan, Six Flags, Sandals Resorts, P&G Beauty and many more. My work has been displayed all over the country, from subway stops to the legendary billboards of Manhattan’s Times Square. 

As design director at Yellow House, I guide the staff in adding color and dimension to the ideas that drive conversations, engagement, discovery and Democracy.

The way to my heart is through travel and food, photography, vintage cameras, KidRobot and my soulmate Lionel Messi.
