Professional Profile.
I am a strategic creative director with more than twenty years of experience in Latin America and the U.S.
A forward-thinking leader with a powerful imagination, focused in the creation of strategic original advertising and promotional campaigns and contents for broadcast and cable TV and digital platforms.

I have created and launched campaigns for US Hispanic broadcast, Colombia’s top television channel and multi-national advertising agencies, bringing exceptional results as well as multiple national and international awards. I have also worked as a Screenwriter, Content Creator and Director of TV shows. These experiences have allowed me to be in an advantageous position when creating promotional campaigns for TV programs. As Creative Director at Caracol Television´s On Air Department, I helped to keep the channel as the nation’s number one in ratings every single year I was in charge. Some of the shows launched at the time are among the top highest rated in the history of Colombian TV.

Inspired by the opportunity to be part of a new broadcast channel for the US Hispanic audience, I moved to Los Angeles accepting the challenge to lead the creative team of MundoFox´s On Air Promotions. During 2013, I led a team of 15 people and implemented a promotional strategy aimed to the heart of our audience. This approach helped MundoFox to scale three positions among the seven Hispanic broadcast networks becoming the fastest growing channel in this market.
