I have been raised in Japan, the United States, and El Salvador, which has allowed me to develop a multicultural perspective. I am native in both English and Spanish and know basic Japanese. Currently, I am a US citizen residing in El Salvador, Central America.
My education began in the United States, where I formally developed my English. During my middle school years, I moved to El Salvador and finished high school in 2010. I graduated from the best college in San Salvador, El Salvador 2018, with a Degree in Strategic Design at Escuela de Comunicación Mónica Herrera.
I also have a diploma for Art Therapy Approaches for Resilience & Stress Reduction at University Dr. José Matiás Delgado San Salvador, El Salvador. Most recently, I have earned a specialization in Digital Advertising Strategy at the University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado, United States.
I am well versed in a handful of programs and other software to help in my professional career: Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Audition, Final Cut Pro X, iMovie, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Keynote, HubSpot, MondayDotCom, Sprout Social, WordPress, Google Ads, Google Analytics, Google My Business, Facebook Ads Manager, Sketch, Figma, HTML, CSS, C#, Unity, and Autodesk Maya.
I love to travel and experience new things. My interests are eating, cooking, watching movies, playing video games, reading manga, and spending time with my mom & family.
I currently live in El Salvador, a beautiful tropical country in Central America. El Salvador has a colorful charm with lush and vibrant landscapes. The food is delicious, and you can easily travel to the beach, lake, and volcanos in one day.
My biggest dream is to create the best video game ever. To accomplish my goal, I have founded a start-up company called Walk. Through Walk, I can produce, develop, and distribute my creations online. I love spending countless hours of my time creating digital entertainment. It brings me great pleasure to share my art with the world and make people smile.
