Creative Designer/ Freelance
"Think geek, breathe geek, live geek..."
My name is Alejandro and I am from the central valley in California. I was born and raised in a small town called Lindsay where it used to be known for their olive trees. This town helped me see the importance of design and technology in my life. Lindsay has always been a small town but over the years technology has been an important role for their growth. As a young boy I was never exposed to cellphones or computers until I reached high school. There I advanced in technology by learning how to dissemble and fix computers for fun. Not only did I fix them but I learned the way of design by taking design classes that introduced new software like Adobe Creative suite and Maya. I immediately had a hunger for technology and the way it worked. Eventually in college I kept up with technology by providing computer repair and cellphone unlocking services. In a matter of time my interest moved into design. I became intrigued with fonts, logos, and visual dynamic color combos. I realized technology was only the heart and bones but design was the skin of this anatomy. Design can be applied to anything we touch or see today. The packaging of a pair of shoes or the design of an operating system. I have learned allot thanks to my university studies but there is still a great deal to learn with experience on the field. I hope to one day be part of a company that not only creates design but helps people around us with design and helps people understand how big of a role design has been in our lives.
