About me

Silver Cuellar III is the Creative Director at Tombras in Atlanta, Georgia. He specializes in strategic brand building, Pokémon Go, and facial hair. He's spent the past 18 or so years working at McGarrah Jessee, Mullen, The Richards Group and BBDO, on everything from fried chicken to ladies underpants. Along the way he’s been fortunate enough to gather recognition from CA, The One Show, Archive, Obies, Clios and his parent’s refrigerator door.

A proud Mexicano from the Central Tejas land of barbacoa and breakfast tacos, he now spends his time outside of work roving the Georgia countryside, poking around various local barbecue establishments as he is also a self-taught Meat Whisperer.

Currently, he resides in Roswell, Georgia with his high school sweetheart Susan, their 11-year old daughter Sophia the Book-Piranha, 7-year old Scotch Tape Enthusiast Silver IV, wildling 5-year old Simon Bear the Dino Lord, as well all the forest critter folk lurking in the woodlands of Northern Atlanta.
