Antonio Garza

The Work Portfolio of Antonio Garza is a collection of a bunch of stuff that Garza has worked on in the last few years. Born and raised in-between the United States and Mexico, he calls both Chuco and Juaritos his home. He wishes to leave the internet prettier than how he found it.

Garza is an alumni of The University of Texas El Paso, where he got his Computer Science degree. Self-taught in the graphic design department, he has the skills and smarts to take on any-scale projects, be it the human-computer experience or the back-end mechanisms to make magic happen, and if anything else were to fail, he surely has the optimism to think on his feet, learn new technologies, and get things done. He is currently open to new creative opportunities to make something worth wild.

He has been told in the past that he has a particular and unique way of seeing things and it reflects on his designs[1]. While his current 8-to-5 has taken over his work time, Garza now focuses his efforts in projects he finds most passion in, from the promotion of local businesses to supporting the cycling community in his border towns.

He traded his car for a bicycle. Collects playing card decks. He has an irrational love for Pro Wrestling, and yes, he does realize that it's fake.

[1] He is color blind.
