Adclub NYC trip

Here’s the skinny. Advertising sort of found me by accident. Ever since I was a a little niño, wreaking havoc on my father and grandparents with my twin, I knew that I wanted to be a creative person. I enjoyed playing pretend and sitting on my brother’s head, but most importantly I enjoyed the hours of drawing we would do together. This lead me to develop a natural appreciation for the arts and any sort of creative work that people produce. Whether it be drawing, painting, music, coding, films, screenwriting, you name it. Hell if it can be produced from scratch and takes skill, I consider it art. Yes, contrary to popular belief, even underwater basket weaving is an art…
Writing stories and drawing comics filled up most of my childhood. I would spend hours turning the vision I had into physical material and the same went for my writing.
I admire writers like Murakami who are able to paint pictures using flowery visual language. I am more of a minimalist in that sense. I need the shortest amount of words to sell a product, but leave them wanting more.
Making something awesome for a client from a few pieces of the puzzle or as little data as possible is a challenge, but not one that I shy away from. It’s the basic principle that allows me to love this field so much.
So, in that regard I’m a data junky.
I love UX.
(when I’m not breaking fingers on keyboard’s due to ill mannered/needy pet cats.)
Fun fact/humble brag: I was accepted into a Graduate level Data skills and Coding class as an undergraduate in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Texas State University.
The modern world slows down for no one and if you don’t want to be left behind then you need to make yourself a part of the digital culture. It’s where most consumer markets live. And if you want to be able to advertise effectively. Then you should know one of the most effective ways to reach your audience.
Which is why I believe you should never shy away from trends. There is always a great deal to learn from them. It doesn’t mean that you have to enjoy them necessarily, but at least remain open minded to the possibilities they can bring. Embrace it and become a part of it.
(plus it’s fun to watch Steve make an ass out of himself attempting the Harlem shake at holiday parties.)
So if you’re looking for someone who is hard working, loves telling stories, digital culture, UX, designing, and pretty much all things creative.
