I'm a 1st-degree black belt in Taekwondo and a professional Graphic and Web Designer, fluent in English and Spanish.

I have over five years of experience in developing engaging and innovative digital and print designs for clients in a broad range of industries, worldwide. Offering and teaching creative design solutions to solve business problems is my passion.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree from Full Sail University which is one of the most prestigious design schools in the country. I graduated with honors at the top of my class as the Advanced Achiever. Since then I have designed internationally with Ashley Furniture Industries and Raymond James Financial.

I have a mentoring heart to help people stretch their wings and have taught and lead multiple groups in the areas of graphic and web design.

As a 1st-degree black belt with 20 years of training from more than one instructor, my Taekwondo lessons are unique because I have a genuine passion for the art of self-defense and understand how important it is to the lives of whom I teach.

Taekwondo and the martial arts not only teaches us how to defend ourselves, it also teaches us self-confidence, discipline, self-control, balance, coordination and several other attributes that are highly beneficial and applicable to our everyday lives. It's as much a mental and emotional journey as it is the physical. It's literally been a life changer for me all meanwhile I've stayed in shape.

I teach my clients in the comfort of my home but am open to teaching wherever they feel more comfortable. I can bring a lot of the gear I have to a park with an open field, the beach or anywhere with an open space.

So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!
