Being born and raised in Camuy, a small town on the northwest coast of Puerto Rico, and living in the U.S. since 1999, I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I have over 15 years of experience as a print and web designer in both the marketing and advertising industries. I am an avid traveler, a dog lover, and have lived in and traveled to multiple states and countries. I love meeting new people, playing board games, hiking and exploring the world around me.
I received a B.S. in Graphic Design from The Art Institution of Fort Lauderdale in Florida. Since graduating in 2002, I have worked as a Web and/or Graphic Designer for various firms and agencies and have held a number of managerial positions. In 2010 I relocated to Buffalo, New York from Boca Raton, Florida to expand my life experiences.
I also possess 7 years of experience managing a team of designers and developers. Based on my prior managerial experience, I am able to work on multiple projects simultaneously owing to my keen organizational and multitasking skills. I especially enjoy collaborating with a creative team to find creative solutions to obstacles. I possess expertise and skills in the following Adobe CS applications: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, and Dreamweaver. I also possess a variety of artistic skills that enhance my designs including advance print and strong WordPress, HTML and CSS skills; not to mention expertise in plushie making, woodworking, sewing, and drawing skills. I have even co-written a coloring book!
I have a keen sharp eye for detail, positive attitude, strong work ethic, easy-going personality, and critical thinking skills. I have a considerable experience working on digital and print advertising, print collateral, social media campaigns, branding/identity and website designs with some development. I am always looking for ways to improve my skills, both as a designer and as a human. As such, I have attended a number of networking events, workshops, conferences, and continued my education as a non-matriculated student to make sure I am the best possible person at my job.
