Designer for hire - let's talk more
Portfolio website

I am a Puerto Rican designer from Naguabo, a small coastal town on the island's southeast side. I grew up swimming competitively, was a 3-time Olympian, and multiple school record holder at the University of Florida. Athletics at the international level afforded me many opportunities to travel worldwide and appreciate new cultures, before choosing a career in graphic design. Every part of my identity and experience is present in my work. This has earned me opportunities with some of the largest sports organizations in the world. As a fully bilingual designer, husband, father, and surfer - I am excited about sharing my work and vision with future generations around the world.
