With over 15 years of design experience and many advertising campaigns under my belt, I now freelance for a variety of clients in Puerto Rico and some in the U.S. I work remotely with clients at times but mostly from my home based studio in Santurce, Puerto Rico.
Currently serving as the Creative Art Director at Novus Group for their Bakers brand, I have also provided insights and visual guidance to some of their other active brands La Favorita, Galería, Florsheim and Novus.
