Carina has been a visual communicator ever since she first picked up a paintbrush as an infant. She was born in Florida to Cuban and Colombian parents, who filled their home with art and music. Her interest in the arts grew with her through college, where she earned a BA in Visual Arts with a minor in Italian.
Her experiences studying and traveling abroad nurtured her appreciation for cultural exchange, which led her to the field of international education. Working with international high school students widened her world view and showed her the value of a global perspective. She is ready to apply this mindset to the world of branding. Carina is interested in how people represent themselves and communicate with each other, and wants to put her creative brain to use helping institutions that make a positive impact on society.
In her free time, Carina practices her creativity by making greeting cards for family and friends, working on home-improvement projects, and cooking up new inventions in the kitchen.
