WARNING: I look really young. But don't freak out, I just have vampire genes.

I'm Jose, a former Am Skateboarder who was able to spend his younger years touring with his sponsors, filming and competing in skate contests without dropping out of school. (Fun fact: gave my first autograph as a skateboarder at age 14.) Today, I'm a Copywriter with a decade of experience in advertising creating and leading work on concept & idea development, creative strategy, experience design and storytelling for world-class brands. All kinds of mediums. All kinds of business categories. Multicultural. Multidisciplinary. Multiplier. Bilingual. Blahlingual. And in love with ideas.
