I was happy making lots of money at a bank, spending everything I earned partying, playing arcade games, girls, you know, everything a kid want to do, but for some reason I was studying Advertising. Bad mix. Then, one day some professor made me realize how cool my life was, but how unhappy i was going to be. So, I quit and looked only for the job of my dream, the hardest 6 months of my life.


At the seventh month, i met a small but cool agency named OTL, but after 2 weeks I got chickenpox, what a bad luck, hah? Then everything got better, I started as a copywriter jr. at G2 Colombia, became senior and after 3 years, I moved to Publicis Colombia as a Creative Group Director.

I think that the whole idea of being creative has nothing to do with a position, it’s just a mindset, by persistence we can make it work.

I love writing and that's the point of keep doing what I do. And that’s why probabbly you are reading this silly story.
