In the possibility that your eyes have avoided the flashy, glaringly large text that sits above this biography, my name is Alejandro Valdivieso and I really do enjoy writing.
My main speciality, hobby, and now unbecoming obsession is in the world of advertising, primarily in copywriting. My habit started early a Marketing Intern at Capsim Management Simulations, Inc. (capsim.com), where I was an all-purpose marketeer one day writing copy for future press releases and the next day editing a video for a new product launch. I maintained this job from June 2011-June 2012, and in the meantime pursued advertising activities at my school, Nothwestern University. This included working as the Director of Marketing for North By Northwestern, Northwestern's largest student publication, and as Director of Public Relations for Northwestern's Delta Chi fraternity.
Recent activities include working as an Entertainment Marketing Intern at Under Armour Inc. (ua.com) during the summer, June 2012-August 2012. I was also hired as a Copywriter Intern for Comunicaemocion, a rising ad agency in Madrid, Spain which I have helped form.
I am fluent in both Spanish and English, proficient in Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop and Indesign, and in writing wherever, whenever, and about whatever.
