I’m a Libra. I like long walks on the beach. I enjoy a good bourbon. I love a good sea pun. I’m a tell-it-like-it-is, no-BS kinda gal. And, more importantly, I feel super passionate about helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses.

I’ve spent the past 15+ years in advertising and marketing (and I’ve got the crazy-ass stories to prove it). I think most marketing advice is crap, and the best thing you can do is ditch the BS and create a no-nonsense path to a business you love — one that actually WORKS for you.

I’m from a little town in Costa Rica called Escazú and I made my way to NYC to be an animator. While working for studios like Nick Jr., PBS Kids, Cartoon Network, & Disney on Broadway, I also taught myself all sorts of things like graphic, branding, web design, illustration, lettering, pattern design… I could go on because I just love to learn and create. My interests never wane and I’ve never found a reason to not indulge a new one.

I firmly believe we’re all creative creatures at heart & we should celebrate all of that creativity and see where it can lead us!

When I’m not busy drawing or designing, you’ll likely find me hanging out with my college sweetheart, Patrick, or putting some Harry Potter Legos together with my boys, likely with ice cream in hand!
