Consultant work for the Fund for Global Human Rights, a D.C. and London-based humanitarian aid non-profit that supports over 300 local groups in more than 25 countries. 2018-2019.
Displayed on the fences outside Espace Niemeyer, in Paris, in collaboration with the Fund for Global Human Rights, I designed the Human Rights Defenders World Summit photo exhibit during the associated event (October 29-31, 2018).
The photo exhibit was later made into a photo essay to honor human rights defenders worldwide as they seek to ensure that all people, no matter who they are or where they are from, can exercise their fundamental human rights. Released on the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it features the stories of grassroots activists supported by the Fund for Global Human Rights—ordinary people pushing to make the tenets of the declaration a reality for all.

The Portland Mercado is an economic community development project of Hacienda CDC that aims to provide a space for Latino business men and women of Portland, Oregon. Since day one, this inspiring grassroots organization has integrated the local micro-business owners in the decision-making stages of the vision of the market.
During the construction stage of the Mercado, the development team and business owners aspire to evoke an experience similar to a trip to Latin America in the Portland Mercado. This vision informed my choice of focusing on the strong photography and highlighting joyful spirit of the business owners in the photos.

These three designs are a result of a collaboration with my friend Pepe Moscoso, a cultural arts producer and artist. Pepe, originally from León, Guanajuato, México, also creates a Mexican cooking sauce (green and red variations) from scratch. While he considered marketing his cooking sauce, I worked with him to create the brand identity of the product.
Be sure to check out Pepe’s photo collages in the link above. Pepe is an ambassador for the Mexican community in Portland, Oregon, and organizes cultural events that explore the importance of identity, migration, and art.
