About me

I am a visual communicator with experience as an Art Director within award-winning advertising agencies. I have worked for a large range of clients such as Renault, Pilsen, O.B, Redbull, Trident, Volkswagen and Colsubsidio. I focus in the conceptualisation stage and I have experience materialising ideas in different medias. I enjoy working in teams since this helps me to understand different perspectives, enabling me to create better and more meaningful ideas to solve my client’s problems.
