Objective Statement

Experienced Graphic Designer with an extensive background in Print, Web Design, and Web Development, seeking challenging assignments in enterprises where I can contribute my skills and experience, adding value and developing quality products.

I'm very passionate about my work and I believe success always comes when preparation meets opportunity. My first working experience with computers dates back to 1989, and since then I haven't stopped achieving new levels of expertise in a number of fields related to computer assisted graphic design, web-oriented development and a wide range of Internet-based technologies.

Working with computers for over 25 years on different areas, such as advertising, printing, Internet, multimedia, TV, Film, etc., across several countries all over the world, has provided me with an extreme adaptability when facing new tasks, be it as a designer, a software developer, or leading a team of professionals in the graphic design industry.

Currently spending long periods of time in Asia, where I manage several outsourcing teams, mainly based in Singapore, top financial and technological hub in South East Asia, and Cebu City, number one of the Top 50 Emerging Global Outsourcing Cities for two consecutive years, 2008 and 2009.
