About me

Born in Honduras, Central America in 1991. My background includes studies and work in visual communication and systems thinking. I’m especially pas- sionate about documentary content, photography, editorial design, and youth culture. Design has become an ideation process for all my work. It is a mindset, a way of seeing and talking about reality that recognizes the interrelatedness of things, therefore coming up with solutions that emphasize the emergent properties of the whole. I’m not interested in the “what if?” but instead in the “how else?”.

          • KVISTUR is a creative collective between me and Tómas Miller. Out of our need to create visuals that inspire others and ourselves, we decided to give life to a graphic design studio that could act as a creative outlet and a medium that could later morph into a cultural movement to empower collaboration between emergent creative minds in Iceland and across the world.

          • Saku Magazine was an experimental digital youth culture platform reporting on the boldest of creativity as it emerged. I co-founded the magazine back in 2013 together with two of my best friends with a common goal to be intellectually playful, redefining concepts and exploring ideas that had not been yet exposed in the Honduran society. We were a collective expression of a desire for culture, seeking to inspire, spark conversation, and fuel creativity. My tasks included the overall creative direction of the magazine, video production and editing, editorial and web design, and handling of social media.
