CHRISTIAN

My story begins in Corpus Christi, Texas. I had the amazing privilege of being raised by my maternal grandparents. Thus, I know every episode of Murder She Wrote by heart. #TeamJessica

 

My grandparents taught me how to find solutions for achieving set goals.

They were limited in funds and could not pay for my secondary education. Not to be defeated, I really applied myself in high school and ended up earning more scholarships than anyone in my graduating class. I also delivered newspaper and worked in an ice cream shop to earn extra money.

This work ethic still burns strong and helps push me forward.

 

Since graduating from FIT in the Summer of 2015, I have worked independently and also freelanced in great branding agencies around NYC. I love working independently because it allows me to exercise multiple talents and responsibilities. It has also made me more conscious and appreciative of each dollar and minute spent on a project.

 

I am currently in search of a full time agency opportunity.
