Currently serving as a designer in the Marketing team at Parlevel Systems. In this role I design internal graphic assets, documents, presentations, websites, and mockups for potential market locations.
Before joining Parlevel, I was a Creative Designer at USAA.
I am also Art Institute of San Antonio alumni where I received my BFA in Graphic Design. When I’m not getting creative juices flowing, my wife and I watch all kinds of films and shows. Plus we tend to go on adventures with our two dogs, Kida and Milo.
