Javier’s 15-year business administration and graphic design background has allowed him to work with and manage many prominent companies in Middle Tennessee. While business management has been his main focus, Javier’s true passions are photography and graphic design.
For 15 years, Javier has freelanced as a graphic designer and as a freelance photographer for 20 years. Javier states that his love for the arts goes beyond the art itself, saying “Art is the unseen bridge between communities and culture. The creative thought is what ties us together as humans and it’s beautiful to know that no matter where I go, I can always find a fellow creator.” Javier grew up in Nashville and currently lives in Pittsburgh, PA.
