My passion for graphics began in my early teen years and has since blossomed into a successful career in graphic design. I studied Advertising in the University APEC (Universidad Acción Pro-Educación y Cultura) and Fine Arts at the School of Fine Arts of Santo Domingo. As well as Graphic Design and Art Direction courses at Altos de Chavon School of Design.
I’m originally from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Twelve years ago, I decided to move to the north coast of the island (Cabarete), to become an independent graphic designer and enjoy the waves after several years working in advertising agencies.
I’m currently working as an in-house Graphic Designer for the Mariposa DR Foundation where we create the Cabarete Responsible Tourism and Investment Guide, an annual travel magazine to fundraise for programs to educate and empower Dominican and Haitian girls. Some of our other social enterprises are Cabarete Coffee Company, and Mariposa Upcycled Sails.
I continue to freelance graphic design on the side to a limited number of loyal clients.
Along with a couple partners, we’ve created the Salty Surf Culture brand, which includes a surf shop and upscale barbershop. Check out some of my work on this page, all over the North Coast of the Dominican Republic and even in some of the Caribbean islands.
