I have over 20 years experience designing high-visibility web and print marketing collateral for national and global brands. I bring expertise in art direction, visual design, user experience, brand and web marketing design. I obtained my MFA from the Academy of Art University in Advertising with an emphasis in Art Direction.

Furthermore, I am an alumni who obtained my B.S. Degree from CSU Monterey Bay in 2006. I am a “vision student”. I grew up locally in the historically underserved community of Castroville, California with low-income farm-working Hispanic parents. I represent everything the CSU Monterey Bay vision statement stands for, and that vision and belief in me took me on a career path to manage creative teams at some of the world’s largest brands.

I look forward to sharing some of my experience with the students of CSUMB.
