Ridículum Vitae

Curriculums nowadays are so, oh! so studied…
People should get awards for those great resumes
that make them shine so bright.

This is not the case. 

 

Perfil-1

 

My Name is Daniel Alejandro, I love how dramatic it sounds when you pronounce it in Spanish. Is just like a Mexican soap opera character. My tongue-twister last name doesn’t get any better: Zaldumbide Garzón, right, like a French Waiter.
I was born on the last day of the year 1988, in the cold city of Quito. That December 31st my mom was definitely not happy, until her beautiful (hairy/moist) baby came out to the light and changed her life. Everything was happily fine until I decided to study advertising. Then things got complicated.

Occupation: I spend a lot of time chatting and cooking by the kitchen, with my iPad always next to me. I also come up with ideas and people give me money for doing It.
Sex: Not much, lately… and I am single, but I partner-dance really good. I’m half Colombian, that’s probably why.
Studies: I mastered the art of “write drunk and edit sober” while having sangría at the Miami Ad School Madrid, then I typed stories all covered up in clothes like a tamale in the cold Miami Ad School San Francisco and later got lost in other cities I really loved. But, where did all this advertising thing started? At the beloved UDLA in Quito and the amazing UEM in Madrid.
Country: I’m from Ecuador, I live among Andean llamas. Literally in the middle of the world. Surrounded by volcanos and sleeping on clouds at night, that’s where I come from, the city of San Francisco de Quito.

Experiences: (Just a few)
Once, when I worked as a creative in Ogilvy Quito, a client asked me to flip a picture on Photoshop because he wanted to see «the front part of a truck» not the backside.

Also (context: I have never really looked the age I actually have), working as a copywriter for JWT, we went to a debrief with our client (a secondary school), the receptionist thought I was a kid, she gave me an Admissions Test and told me to wait for the teacher.

(Another context: My dad is a well known newspaper Jurnalist in Ecuador) So, Working as a Creative in Maruri Grey -on my first week at the Agency- a client came to the room where I was, she got in shock, and started talking (screaming) to me: “I can’t believe it! You are Cesar Zaldumbide’s son!! I used to change your diapers! OMG, look how big you are now”. I just wanted the floor to swallow me to death. I didn’t even know who this woman was. Then I called my dad and he told me she was the daughter of his assistant, and yup… she did change my diapers once… 

 Other Abilities:
·
Pancakes, the best you’ll ever try!
· Make my friends look handsome with Photoshop
· Doodling on Illustrator.
· I can move my ears.
· I can also craft a really good pesto.
· I’ve done some voiceovers. 
 Aspirations:
·
To dance the Mambo like a Cuban.
· To get to know my co-Workers Ridículums.
· To lose a little weight from this cuerpito latino.
· To work for a multi-cultural agency with a good coffee machine.
· Maybe a waffle machine too.
·

Contact: Never touch my under arm because it’s kind of soft. It makes me kind of uncomfortable. We don’t want to be uncomfortable so you can email me to ElPapi69@latinmail.com (not real) or better yet, contact me by clicking: here (right now would be a great moment I’m just chilling before getting back to work)
