Hi! I’m Jen Garcia - a passionate art director who has worked in New York, Chicago, and now San Francisco.
After graduating from college, I attended Miami Ad School and since then I’ve worked at Venables Bell, BBDO Chicago, DDB NY and Muhtayzik-Hoffer. A lot of my passion projects have a strong social cause behind them - I believe there’s a lot of good we can do in our industry, even on our own as creatives.
Hobbies include staying broke, shooting film photography, and trying hole-in-the-wall bizarre foods, like Andrew Zimmern and the late Anthony Bourdain.
Let's grab a donut.
