CV / Résumé     alexisbudejen@gmail.com
My grandfather once punched a horse in the mouth. He was a real-life cowboy from Cuba, a ranchero. He kept it up well into his 80’s. He was passionate, devoted, disciplined and loved what he did for a living. He was my role model and it's because of him that I followed my own passion with so much devotion and dedication. 
My name's Alexis Budejen. I'm a husband, a father to twin boys, an award-winning senior art director, a teacher, team player, zine maker/collector, Simpsons fan, and dog owner. I enjoy working across all mediums, both offline and online. Throughout my career I’ve had the opportunity of working with various brands such as Allstate Insurance, Oreo's, Kellogg’s, Nestlé, NFL, Papa John’s Pizza, Quaker State Motor Oil, Mini Cooper, 7-Eleven, Gain Laundry Detergent and other P&G brands just to name a few. I've been fortunate enough to work with some great people which has led to us winning multiple awards across multiple projects and mediums. On top of working at some of the best agencies I've also decided to mentor young creatives at Miami Ad School as an adjunct professor. 
When not working I enjoy hanging out with my family and dogs, drawing, traveling, reading books, watching horror movies and cartoons, creating zines and trying to figure out how the universe works. 
Thanks for taking the time to check out my work.
