He adheres to deadlines and reinforces high quality brand standards. His work is impactful because he conducts due diligence and research to better understand what attracts the target consumer. But most of all, Henry has the unique ability to translate business and marketing objectives into creative strategy.

"Henry is an all around creative guru that can handle any type of creative work. He is humble and modest about what he is capable of and in the few projects he has worked for my team he has delivered. He has presented solutions that respect the budget constraints, the production timelines and the elevated creative that is expected. He has a firm grasps of interpreting creative briefs and processing feedback with pinpoint accuracy. Would totally hire him again for important projects."

He quickly gets a sense of a brand's identity and creates wonderful designs and POS items to further a brand message in the market. He takes the time to ask great questions, suggest additional ideas and executions, and provide an interesting, fresh perspective to build on initial ideas.

His design work is top notch but moreover, he's simply an outstanding colleague, collaborator and person who we've thoroughly enjoyed working with. Can recommend Henry with the highest degree of confidence and intend to keep working with Henry on a project basis moving forward. Best regards, Michael Preis VP of Marketing Palm Bay International"
— Michael Preis, Vice President - Marketing, Palm Bay International, was Henry's client
"I had the good fortune to get to know Henry while I was a brand manager at Palm Bay. Henry led the creative work of a number of our biggest fine wine brands, most notably Santa Rita but also Terra Andina and Citra among others. While there's no doubt that Henry is extremely creative and skilled as an art director and designer, what I appreciated most as a client were the less tangible aspects: his strategic approach to addressing the challenges posed in a brief, his ability to present and defend creative that made us think differently, and his flexibility, openness to feedback and willingness to work with us to deliver work that fit our needs without compromising his strong design principles. And on top of all this, Henry's good nature and sharp yet subtle sense of humor makes him someone that is just plain fun to work with. "
— Jessica LeMay Willey, Brand Manager, Palm Bay International, was Henry's client

"Henry is a storyteller. A storyteller who tells deep, imaginative, wonderful stories. You can see this gift in his art direction and his photography. And he writes. And he writes well. And beyond that, Henry is a straight up, good dude (exhibit A, his work with homeless pets). It's so rare that you find someone with this level of talent and who really is a genuinely good person. Anytime Henry calls for me to help him out on a project, i know it's going to be good."
— Joey Crawford, worked directly with Henry at REVOLUCION
"I had the pleasure of working together with Henry for a few years at MGS where he was Creative Director and I was Account Supervisor. We worked together on multiple accounts but most consistently on Milk (MilkPEP) and Outback Steakhouse accounts. He was always a team player, very interested in hearing the thoughts/ insights provide by all on the team to then provide the most relevant, hard-hitting creative possible. He particularly impressed me with how efficiently he was able to turn around thoughtful and concise work, especially when unforeseen deliverables popped up…and I know our clients always appreciated that as well."

— Carla Trum Mercado, Partner, Commonground MGS, worked directly with Henry at Commonground/MGS
"What can i say about Henry. Our time together working together was short but definitely memorable. The attribute that stuck out the most to me was his relentless work ethic. Not one to just deliver work on brief and be done, Henry shook, prodded and massaged the brief and his work until he was thoroughly satisfied and others were left impressed. An absolute pleasure to collaborate with I only wish we had more opportunities to do so. "
— Mike Williams, SVP of Creative, Commonground/ MGS, worked directly with Henry at Commonground/ MGS
"I was fortunate to work under Henry's creative direction for 2 years in U.S. Hispanic agency Revolución. He stopped being my boss 4 years ago, but what he taught me back then keeps going up in value as my career is moving forward. He showed me the real design. The design from when design was king and art direction was an art. I've never worked with a creative Art Director who is as talented and passionate for design as Henry. His work is sharp, consistent and meticulously beautiful. He was an honest boss and he's now an honest friend. I hope our paths will cross again professionally in the near future."
— Marc Duran, Creative, REVOLUCION, reported to Henry at REVOLUCION

I hope to work with him again in the future."

I've really enjoyed working with Henry and have the utmost respect for him, so much so, that we have become personal friends as we each have moved on to different work places. I highly recommend Henry as being your next partner in business - whatever it may be. You will not be disappointed."
