Octavio had it rough as a young boy in Miami, spending time on the ocean swimming, fishing, lobstering, skin diving, and all-around beach bumming. Ever since he can remember, he drew and painted everything in sight, while dreaming of being a famous artist. In high school, he was accepted into the New World School of The Arts visual arts program, which started him on a path that ultimately led to graduating from the Kansas City Art Institute.
He started his creative career in the South Florida tourism industry, working for resorts in the Caribbean, creating advertising campaigns, branding and collateral materials, and other high-visibility projects for brands like Delta Airlines Dream Vacations, Cayman Air Tours, and Continental Grand Destinations. He was also an art director for a little company called Disney (perhaps you’ve heard of them?), in their Consumer Products division. As Creative Director for our Boca office, Octavio has developed an impressive body of work that spans over ten years and several industries, from luxury real estate to retail and restaurants. He always delivers cutting-edge creative that is on message and gets results – and his work has earned a multitude of gold and silver ADDYs, as well as many other industry awards. All in all, not bad for a beach bum.
