I'm a fashionable creative intellect who has a fine art background; birthed from a mother who studied fashion; formed from a father who is extremely passionate about automotive engineering; inspired by a grandmother who has worked in the fashion industry in New York City and in Venezuela; mentored by a Grandfather who was a photographer for the New York City Press Association. This is what's in my genetic creative code. These are the personal influences that continue to inspire me to be creative, design savvy, build my awareness about the arts, and develop artistic and international awareness. The culmination of a creative upbringing while being exposed to a media driven city like New York City, has helped craft the design sense and creative instinct leading my design decisions and thought process. My motivation is to produce meaningful work that adds value to the lives of clients.
I'm originally a traditional artist from New York that eventually made the transition into the world of Graphic Design, Brand Identity Design and Web Development.

She lost the ability to launch her business online and sell her products. Feeling hopeless and not having the know-how behind the web project it inspired me to do something about it.
Having served clients around the United States I've come to discover that there is a huge lack of both competency, talent, and customer service when it comes to clients working with designers and web developers. That personal situation inspired me to teach myself the design and development skill sets needed to help others in a much larger way. The House of Moves was born to provide two things for clients: ONE: the ability to work with a designer who can provide high-end design; TWO: be an educational resource for technical and creative questions that many people have

Long Term Goals
The majority of the work I do falls into the realm of commercial design which includes web design, print design, identity design, and web development. My long term goal is to transition out of these specific mediums and dedicate myself full-time to being a luxury brand identity consultant; eventually stepping away from the computer and being involved with design education, creative consulting, and providing solutions to clients while overseeing the execution.
