About Professional things
Across a career spanning over a decade, I’ve worked with enterprises such as Apple, AIA, Compass, NBC, Volkswagen, and many others. My multidisciplinary expertise has granted me fluency across mediums, but good storytelling is what underpins them all; weaving compelling narratives is what I do best.
Currently remote and available for full-time and freelance opportunities. Let’s collaborate!

A Maryland native, I was raised on a combined dose of puritan values from my mother, immigrant discipline from my father, and a straightedge punk ethos from my brother.
Somehow, that fusion led me to art school, a career in design, and a perpetual series of existential crises. These days, I’m a born-again atheist, fully vegan, and willfully nomadic.
Outside of work, I compose and produce music as Phantom Heir and Absent Host, write stories without endings, and snuggle up with my furry friend Flaco.
What is Sombra anyway?
In Spanish, sombra means shadow. It’s a nod to my Latino roots and an homage to my fascination with the macabre and darker side of things (such as black metal, horror, and the occult). Mostly, it’s a concise meditation on how the best design often sits in the shadows of existence and leads from the periphery.
