"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all." - Helen Keller
I am a creator.
A visual storyteller. AN Ideamaker.
Hi there! I'm Suarez (yes, I go by my last name).
I will be receiving my Master's in Business/Branding with a focus on Strategy this May. The Brandcenter has led me to deep-dive people and culture that ultimately reveal human insights that fuel creative concepts. Using strategy as a foundation coupling my ability to creatively execute makes me a perfect producing candidate.
My career has spanned from managing sales and staff in the fashion industry, to leading a product launch at retail stores like PetSmart with Colgate-Palmolive. And most recently learning the ins-and-outs of advertising production in television, social, and digital (EP+Co). Also, I dipped my feet into entrepreneurship by creating an experiential fashion boutique out of a UPS box truck.
I've always been enamored with video games and media/entertainment since youth. Every week I make every effort in seeing a theatrical feature (RIP MoviePass hello Regal Unlimited!) and my love of games has expanded from screen to tabletop as of late. Oh yeah, I film too.

All potential VCU Brandcenter applicants were tasked to answer, "In two, short considered paragraphs, tell us who you are and what you are good at." Most submitted in writing, instead I decided to do a slam poetry video.
