I'm Rod!

Well my name it is actually Rodrigo, but most of English Speakers called me “Rod” in order to avoid spelling mistakes. I  am an Argentinean-bread advertiser who has developed digital design and marketing skills through several years working for Sercom (digital design company) and freelance jobs. I must say, growing in line with Internet development helped me to get into digital world from the beginning of my career.

I am passionate about design and communication, always up to date, learning from current trends and new concepts.

I have been traveling for a while (lived in Australia, Denmark and New Zealand) and although I could not work on my field locally, I could adjust to new cultures, languages, environments, and even jobs…sort of ones that I have never thought I was up to do.

Adjusting to new things, it is good for anyone personal and professional development. I believe that’s why I could become a digital designer from a graphic one, adjust my advertiser skills into digital marketing.

As Darwin said, “…the species that survives is the one that is able to adapt to and to adjust best to the changing environment in which it finds itself…”
