About Me

Know me, and you will comprehend what I do, and also what I love.

My name is Jose Alberto Santos, born and raised in the mountains of the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, United States. I grew up in the skirt of social rewards, covered with the indifference of status and convergence on the growth and development of my abilities.

From a very young age, is awoke in me a great interest for the technology and fine arts, with the endorsement of my family and the school I began to develop artistic creations through charcoal and color pigmentation for thus advance with my passion in the fine arts. Also, I managed to win art and creativity awards at my young age, which was of sufficient motivation to continue doing what I like most in my life.

As part of my intellectual development, I obtained a bachelor’s degree in digital graphic arts with a minor in digital marketing and advertisement on Atlantic University in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, what had given me a high flight in the labor and professional field, to continue developing on the field of creativity. Then I return to studies to obtain a master’s degree in graphic arts on the same college campus. Until then I count with more than 12 years experience in the field of creative development for digital marketing and outdoor advertising in all aspects.

At this moment, I also continue growing my bits of knowledge in the developing of the UI/UX field for developing mobile interface applications.
