I’m a natural longtime Entrepreneur; multifaceted and skillful in the art of surviving life. Perseverance, Vision and Passion are some of my personality traits. I plan and take action on anything I desire; following intuition or taking chance of the best opportunity arising. My mind is limitless and so is my drive; always well aware of my surrounding reality. I cannot rest until I change the world!
I have developed over 25 small business ventures since I was 16 years old, from scratch to finish. Growing up in Caracas blessed me with a better perception of the world and a real understanding of how life for those who don’t have enough can be very tough. I immigrated to Canada (my grandmother’s country) in November 2007; partly because of Venezuela’s political instability, but mostly because I knew it was my destiny and I was just waiting for the right moment to do it. I first moved to beautiful Vancouver, but soon after I realized I was in the wrong place and moved to Toronto by chance; I consider Toronto my home and I have established myself here.
Being a master-asker since an early age has made me gain valuable knowledge and experience after years of pursue of success and multiple encounters with reality and challenges. I have become a keen problem solver. As an entrepreneur you soon realize you have to start doing most things yourself when you begin any business; due lack of spendable money or simply just because it’s my job to know it all there is to be known by men. I go through the whole creative process of developing businesses with ease. I work on; Core Concept Creation, Name Selection, Brand Identity, Sales Strategy, Target Market, Competition Analysis, Social Media, Advertising, Marketing, Legal, Payroll, Planning, Strategy, Market Opportunities, Business Plan Development, Product Creation, Accounting, Workflow, Organization Strategies, HR, etc.
During my journey I have experienced secondary education in several careers like; Business Management, Social Communications, Graphic Design and Food and Beverage Management. I have worked directly and independently in industries like; Event Planning, Quick-Service Restaurants, Food Manufacturing, Property Management, Graphic Design, Printed and Web Media, Transportation Services, Import and so on.
Nowadays, I focus on doing graphic design and business planning consulting for entrepreneurs in the F&B Industry (I can excel at any other industry too). I’m based Downtown Toronto in a 7,000+ SQF property in the heart of Kensington Market; we have been developing the place into an amazing Food Court and Culinary Incubator for aspiring entrepreneurs. We have been featured in the local media often and have gained a solid base of clientele for the store. We have also hosted multiple events and many films and videos have been filmed on location by independent people as all the property walls are painted by famous worldwide Graffiti artists and the scenery is its charm and biggest appeal.
I have expertise in Print Design and I can develop websites using content management platforms such as Wordpress or Joomla. Branding is what I like to do the most.
I usually do; Logos, Menus, Brochures, Signs, Flyers, Posters, Brand Identity, Business Cards, Banners, CMS Websites, Publications, Annual Reports, Corporate Identity, Photo Editing, etc.
I follow a complete creative process in which; I Brainstorm, Research, Sketch and Digital Design my work to ensure professional designs.
I’m Toronto based but I work with clients all over the world.
