I am a professional in creative art direction, marketing, graphic design and branding with some of the most recognizable brands in the world.
Born and raised in Panama, I immigrated to the United States to pursue my artistic dreams.
I am a 24-year Disney veteran. My artistic career with Disney started as an animation artist in 1994. I worked as an ink and paint artist where I produced hundreds of animation art cels for the collectible market.
I later transitioned to graphic design where I acquired expert knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite.
My career at Disney has taken me to work for ESPN, Walt Disney Imagineering, Walt Disney Feature Animation, Disney Cruise Line, Walt Disney Parks and Resort Sales, and Partners Federal Credit Union, the Disney sponsored credit union.
I am presently a Design and Brand Manager responsible for strategic marketing design and branding.
I also freelance as Art Director/Graphic Designer working with a variety of clients in the development and execution of brands, marketing and advertising covering a wide range of deliverable channels.
In early 2018, I released my first book, a creative memoir called SUN NIGHT. It is the story of the close relationship I had with my brother while growing up in Panama. In August 2018, the book received the distinguished President's Book Award from the Florida Authors and Publishers Association. On May 31, 2019, SUN NIGHT was selected as a finalist in the renowned International Latino Book Award. Placement will be unveiled at a ceremony in Los Angeles on September 21, 2019.
