I JUST MET A GIRL NAMED MARIA…
The most beautiful sound I ever heard.
Growing up, I knew I was different from most people around me. And for some time, I tried to change myself to fit in with everyone else.
As an adoptee from Colombia, I learned to love my story and everything that came with it. I learned about my strengths, passions, and limitations. With time, I realized that my creativity made me stand out from the rest. I learned to stay true to myself and accept all the traits that make me unique.
While studying Graphic Design in New York, my confidence and creativity flourished. I learned to fill my soul with the things that mean the most to me. I keep my ideas flowing by inspiring myself with an inspirational quote, capturing a unique picture and trying different angles, or taking care of my mind and body with a long hike in the woods.
My career has allowed me to design for an array of different industries under some pretty unique platforms. I started out designing restaurant menus and promotional materials for various establishments in the Hudson Valley. Later, I moved on to helping local companies simplify their branding so it would be effective on supermarket advertising.
A turning point in my career was landing a job at Stream Companies, and relocating to Philadelphia, PA to design automotive advertisements for local and regional dealerships across the country.
Every experience and project I meet is an opportunity to learn and grow. I have worked with so many talented people, challenged my skillset under various industries, and embraced every situation that comes my way. Each experience and encounter has helped me accept myself, explore my creativity, and become one of the strongest designers in my industry – and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Let's work together!
