Creative Director at GREY NEW YORK
New York, United States

About me

I was born in Chile, a long but thin country in South America, and where I worked for the first 5 years of my career. There, I’ve had the chance of learning from really talented people at DDB, GREY, and Y&R. It couldn’t have been a better start.
Now, it has already been 4 years since I left Santiago for a fresh start in New York.

Currently I work as Creative Director/Art at Grey New York. A hell of a ride! But how did I get here? Well, apart from working hard, let’s say that I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time. A few times. Also, I truly believe that if you’re surrounded by equally passionate people, you get luckier and luckier over time.

Some awards and other recognitions:

11 Cannes Lions — 7 D&AD’s — 9 LIA’S (including a Grand LIA’s) — 9 Clio’s — 6 One show — 3 ANDY’s — 3 Ojo de iberoamerica (Including a Grand Prix) — 13 Lürzer's Archive — New York Festivals Grand Jury
