My Story

I’m a designer by trade, and an entrepreneur by nature. I also fancy myself as a leader – I love to empower people to help themselves. That’s what I strive to do through my businesses too. I’d like to think that I help my clients become more sustainable because of it, but who knows, right?

I’ve founded 2 companies to date — one (www.getoutofthehouse.org) was a total flop. My freelance branding/design business (Monazu Creative Group) is still going strong. I have a bunch of experience in the foodservice management business and a little in the engineering industry, but in the end, I’m a marketer.

I’m definitely always on the prowl for the next opportunity, but Monazu is my fallback and my baby. To find out more about my professional experience, check out my LinkedIn profile. You can also see my design portfolio on Behance.

To keep myself from boring you, I’m just gonna swipe an idea from my close friend Tony Aguilar, and give you a list of things that seem awesome to me:

  • Friends + family
  • Business
  • Living in Austin
  • Football — Go Cheeseheads
  • Bleeding Burnt Orange
  • Design
  • (Website) code
  • Vegas
  • Mentoring
  • Beer — especially craft
  • Country music
  • Any live music, actually
  • Startups
  • Disproving my doubters
  • San Antonio Spurs
  • Meeting new people
  • Gadgets + technology
  • Travelling
  • Tubing
  • Wearing boots
  • BBQing
  • Learning + growing
  • Cheesy jokes
  • Eating (x10)

I think that about covers it. If you’re still here, you must be interested in talking. Whether you want to make fun of my cheesy jokes, talk about country music, or just bounce an idea around, reach out, and let’s chat.
