I’m a Guatemalan-American graphic designer, art director & illustrator based in Chicago. I focus to visually narrate stories behind the work I create. Perspectively, I'm rooted in empathy for the consumer journey and touchpoints.

(Experience)

I work with clients from around the world to bring stunning one of a kind solutions crafted to last. I help encourage consistency across all mediums, print/digital, systems design and strategy. Develop strong results by designing experiences that serve as the glue between the brand, the product and the market.

Being an independent designer allows me to be a proud generalist. Experienced in everything from accounting, project management, and copy editor. My work ethic shows my colleagues that I’m reliable, hardworking, and an engaged designer. I’m up for a challenge that will expand my responsibilities and knowledge.

Doodle-Coffee

I’ll take any reason to leave my desk. If you ever wish to talk shop or bend my ear on an idea I’d love to grab a coffee at either Metric or Chocolate City. Reach out in any one of the many ways.
