Design has the potential to empower and educate. Design can communicate cultural values. Design can inspire change in individuals and communities.

I design to facilitate access to health information and therefore, to diminish social inequities.

Explore the work of CommunicArte, the collection of my visual communication work that bridges my passion and experience in Community Health Promotion - in the US and abroad - Art, and Graphic Design.

My collected experiences include working with inspiring Nicaraguan youth, male and female community leaders, and non-profit organizations that believe in an individuals' ability to be a agent of change. Through these experiences, I have filled up a vessel of Panamerican images, values and realities, which all inform this amazing hybrid of Community Health Promotion + Graphic Design + Social Advocacy.
