In a cozy apartment in lower haight...
I’m Graphic Designer and Musician born and raised in Mexico City. I studied at Universidad Iberoamericana with a focus on packaging.
I started my career in 2001 at CMD Associates, a boutique design and advertising firm. During my time there, I worked on print, advertising, interactive media, and web design for global brands such as Domino's Pizza, José Cuervo Tequila, and Visa.
At the end of 2002, joined ING Mexico where I developed print and interactive materials for all insurance products and internal communications, including the company's iIntranet. This position gave me the opportunity to explore the potentials of a single brand.
In 2004 I launched Biovo, serving as Creative Director and Project Manager for a wide range of clients, including photographers, designers, and programmers. From ING México and UC Berkeley Haas School of Business, to local non-profits and NGOs like Infancia Común and CEDAT, Biovo broadened his experience by working across the different disciplines of design. In 2007 I moved to San Francisco and joined Native Instinct as a Visual Designer. Our team worked with clients such as Visa, Wells Fargo, Flip Cameras, and Salesforce. I was responsible for providing visual concepts, designs, flash animations, and sound design for websites and interactive products.
In 2012 I joined Skype as a Visual designer. I helped to integrate Skype with various Microsoft products, such as Outlook.com and Office 365. SinceIn 2015, I have been in charge of visual design for Skype’s Android app. I had the opportunity to contribute to Skype’s redesign following Material Design guidelines.
Over the years I have enjoyed and learned so much from the different teams I had the oportunity be part of, I think collaboration can make incredible products and when designing users are the most important element in the mix.
When not designing, I am an active musician with 5 albums and can be found performing in small venues throughout the Bay Area, with occasional performances in Mexico City.
