Jose Saenz is an award winning professional photographer, film maker, illustrator and graphic designer. As a multimedia and communication specialist with over a decade of experience in different media outlets and a variety of mediums, Jose is as versatile as he is passionate about art and design. He has a very distinct artistic voice yet his work is always guided by his clients’ needs.
Jose was born in Nicaragua in 1979 and raised in Miami Florida from the time he was four. At a very early age drawing and making movies piqued his interest. This eventually led him to study Animation and Media Arts at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale where he received a Bachelor of Science degree. Upon graduating he was hired as the lead illustrator for a children’s theme park in South Florida. He was involved in all aspects of the production pipeline and collaborated on a wide spectrum of projects from designing corporate identities and designing billboards to overseeing the art direction and fabrication of major theme park landmarks. After several years in that role and moonlighting as a freelancer for various advertising agencies, Jose moved north to broaden his scope of work where he honed in his skills as a photographer and film maker. Currently he is a Visual Information Specialist at a government agency in Washington, D.C.
