Hi, I'm Omar and am desperately searching for a full-time job in design (aren't we all).

Who am I? I am an easy going, sarcasm-shooting, hardworking gentleman seeking to lavish the world with a little touch of me. I love working with other people and truly enjoy helping people out with their problems (and "life-crisis") by opening up and splashing out some sense of humor onto their lives. If I dont get slightest laugh out from under them, I've failed. But that rarely happens.

What's my purpose?

To vomit out my ever-lasting imagination and impact lives and hopefully add a little more charm and sense of humor and vitality to the world. Humor aside, I am very professional and dedicated. I am naturally well organized, prioritized, and am a reliable worker, friend, and stranger (if you will). Like a work of art, my creations and sense of being is not complete unless it has shot-up a hunger for life, passion, and even a bit of shock.

So what?

Designing for change is what. I have an array of interests within design. Although I majored in Interior Architecture from UC Davis, I indulge in graphic design as well. Molding spaces and sparking the unique light everyone needs is what I aim for in term of designing interiors. Since I was 3, I've been constantly drawing on paper and on air trying to unfold and spill out my creative instincts. Graphics design has become an inspiring medium that has helped further ignite that fire.

So please feel free to look at some of my projects and give me any feedback, advice, or just simply to say "HELLO."
