I'm a multicultural Colombian creative raised in Venezuela and currently residing in the US. When I was 12 years old, I accidentally swallowed a diamond, perhaps that was my stroke of luck to live in incredible places such as Amazonas, Tuluá, Cali, Bogotá, LA, Dallas, and on top of everything, winning more than 150 awards.
During my 12 years of experience, I’ve helped build big ideas and increased revenue for recognized brands across Latam, HM, and GM in the US.
Early in my career, I won prestigious awards such as Young Lions, and the London International Awards invited me twice to their renowned CreativeLIAison program in Las Vegas. These unforgettable experiences have allowed me to create a valuable network of friends and professional connections at a global level; as a result, I have been invited to be a Jury member of different Advertising Festivals in Europe, North America Asia, and Latin America.
On my B side, I’m a Dad, autodidact, tireless apprentice, bitcoiner, cyclist, traveler, and founder of the Foundation: “Movimiento Voces Por Los Niños” in Colombia. Beyond my passion for the business, I love writing short stories for my beautiful son, Thiago Mondragón, who doesn't give a hoot about his daddy’s rankings in advertising.
