Bio

Childhood
As I remember, my family spelled the word “ART” all along my childhood. Faith or unintended influence, I was born in a creative team thad fed me with the world of arts live and direct.
The closest influence was my mother and sister. My teenage sister opened my eyes to free drawing and the expression of emotions throughout paintings. Her room was covered with the names of her favorite artist and bands that she had painted and decorated by hand.
I was a curious kid, and regardless of getting in trouble, the adrenaline of exploring always kept me going for more. Scavenging my mothers drawers I discover she had a hidden hobby. I found an old film camera which I secretly play with pretending to be a photographer.

Education
I always had a bug for adjusting things if I wasn’t happy with its structure or design.
Growing up, I refined my taste and develop a visual judgement of what pleased my eye, and what didn’t as well.
I graduated from a fine arts high-school where I hone my Illustration skills. I learned the exiting craft of design, but furthermore I learned how to digitize my ideas into a computer. Opening the doors to a whole new world for me to play.
After high-school I moved to New York where I took my time to explore the fields of my best interest. I became attracted to filmmaking and photo-manipulation. I taught myself how to make and edit videos as well as Illustrating an Idea, from the pre-production, post-production to the final product.
I decided to pursue a career in advertising with the ideal of having my own company and share my Ideas with the world.

Passion
One of the biggest excitements in life is starting up a new project. The idea of being able to materialize anything I can possibly dream of, any thought that could run through my mind.
The journey that begins from the sparkle of an idea and brainstorming for concepts, to putting all pieces together until the polished version.
fascinates me.

My Courses

COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

This site is designed to help you find fieldwork/study situations of approximately eight hours per week at an internship site approved by the Department Internship instructor such as an advertising agency, graphic design firm, corporate design office, publications art department, photography or illustration studio, TV or multimedia production company. Students will be required to keep a learning journal of their internship in the form of a blog using Openlab. A portion of the class will be devoted to presenting and sharing experiences with classmates. Students will learn how to assess their talents, update their resume, and promote themselves and their work through social networks. Students will be required to setup and maintain at least two social media networks such as: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. The instructors for this class are there as mentors if you have not yet found an internship before registering for the course. However, the instructors do not find an internship placement for you. It is your responsibility to find a position that fits your personal career path and help you transition to full time employment upon leaving the halls of CityTech. Ideally, you will use this site to find an internship the semester before taking the COMD 4900 class.
