"Manuel gets it. He gets ideas. He gets strategy. And he gets what it takes to make it big in this industry. He's passionate, talented and tenacious. Which is exactly what it takes to be successful in advertising. I have no doubt he'll go far."
- Matt Eastwood, GCCO, McCann
"I worked with Manuel on a pitch for a product launch at FKA. This was my first pitch with this team and he showed me the ropes and was very supportive. Not to mention, collaborative. We really delved into the mind of the audience and spent a lot of time talking about strategy, and that showed through in the fresh creative. Our TV scripts and ad campaigns were very well received. It was great working as a team, and would love to work with Manuel again!"
- Lili Tan, Creative, FKA
"I met Manuel on Day 1 of my gig at Annex 88, and we found our groove immediately. Over the next month+ we'd sell in a TV spot for a water brand, pitch "big moment" ideas for a coffee brand, and deliver digital campaigns and experiences for a fashion house as part of their show at Fashion Week Milan. In what could have been a very stressful job, Manuel made sure we always knocked it out of the park. Manuel constantly brought new ideas to the table and helped evolve the ones I brought to him. His art direction skills were instrumental to us selling in ideas internally and delivering fully fleshed out decks for client presentations that were consistently well-received. Manuel would be an asset to any project and I'd be more than happy to work with him again."
- Skyler Dobin, Creative, Annex 88
"I had the pleasure of working with Manuel at Northwestern Mutual and if you’re looking for someone who will never create anything expected or untrue, Manuel is your man. He is a talented Art Director, an original, and someone who sees stuff that everyone misses. He's is also an awesome human, always ready to lend a helping hand. I’d love to work with him again!"
- Yuliya Levina, DD, Wunderman
"I’ve worked with Manuel on multiple projects at different agencies. Each time he has been very professional, hardworking and personable. He comes up with solid ideas, has a great sense of design and possesses a master-level knowledge of the Adobe Suite. I highly recommend working with Manuel if you get the chance."
