Just don't call me Jack.
A finely-honed sense of art direction developed over 9 years of trying things that didn't look quite right at first, and then figuring out how to make them better.
Learned the basics at school. Can pick up a DSLR (heck, even an iPhone) camera and shoot photos or video in a pinch - and do a "not bad" job of it.
When you do a thing often enough, you inevitably get better. Edit a video for client? No sweat. Create animations from scratch? You got it.
Art direction & design come together like a horse and carriage - you can't have one without the other. And if you do, you're doing it wrong.
Trained by the finest minds at Miami Ad School, I'm able to pull ideas out of thin air! Almost like magic, ne?
Started young and never stopped. It's turned into a lifelong skill that I enjoy using, as a hobby or (in those special instances) for client work.

Quintessential Pisces. Creative, intuitive, prone to strong gut reactions. Logical to a fault. Passionate about work. Allergic to missed deadlines.
Graduated with an economics degree, but after a few adventures along the way, changed tracks. After Miami Ad School, I've been working as an art director for over 9 years. Was it the right choice? Absolutely. Am I the right choice for your company? I think you know my answer to that.
Sorry, still working on my Klingon.
Stop, you'll make me blush...
I had the pleasure of working with Pablo a little over 4 years. He really can do anything! I've witnessed him succesfully tackle print, digital (responsive site designs, banners, VR, digital detailers), animation, video and print production, and he does it all with an amazing vision and element of ease. But then, there is always more to Pablo than meets the eye. He is able to accomplish this all in a shorter time period, with greater accuracy and more heart than many creatives. He is special. I certainly hope our paths cross again.
Having worked directly with Pablo for over a year, I can say without a doubt that I would gladly work side-by-side with him again. Pablo is an all around good egg and a damn good photographer, illustrator and art director. I see him accomplishing great things in the near future - and if you're lucky, he'll do them for you and your clients. Hire him. Now.
It's safe to say, I'm the one person who has known him the longest in his life. 10/10, wouldn't change a thing. Still not married though - do you know someone you'd recommend?
Pablo is the secret weapon. The quiet, confident, creative force. Not only does he know everything techie, but something about everything. One of those. I love concepting with him because he always pushes me to think more. Look for the twist. I assume in the next 5 years he’ll create his own planet, and a way of transporting there. Until then, you should really try to work with him.
