Creative • Art Director • Teacher • World's Best Dad
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 follow my own passions with so much devotion and dedication. Probably also why I'm currently living on a farm. 
My name's Alexis Budejen. I'm a husband, a father to twin boys, an award-winning art director, a teacher, team player, zine maker/collector, and Simpsons fan. 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, HBO, Google, 7-Eleven, Lilly, Gain Laundry Detergent and many other P&G brands just to name a few. I've been fortunate enough to work with some great people which has led to award-winning work across multiple platforms and mediums. On top of working at some of the best agencies I also mentor young creatives as an adjunct professor at Miami Ad School. 
When not working I enjoy hanging out with my family, drawing, traveling, reading books, listening to music, watching weird movies and cartoons, creating zines and trying to figure out how the universe works. 
Thanks for taking the time to check out my work.
