I’ve won some awards, have gotten some attention from the press and had my mom say “oh wow, that’s cool!”.
I’m also Co-Founder and Creative Director of Viva con Agua California, founded a balloon company, took a photo every waking hour for a year to bring awareness to teen depression and started my own instagram cooking show.
I am currently based in Los Angeles and available for exciting opportunities anywhere.

Edi started his career in Hamburg, Germany where he worked at Grabarz&Partner Hamburg on accounts like Volkswagen, Stern, and IGFM. After winning several awards including Cannes Lions, Clios, NY Festivals, ADC NY and ADC Germany, Edi took a creative sabbatical at the Miami Ad School Europe. There he had the opportunity to work at Saatchi&Saatchi Stockholm, DDB Stockholm, CP+B Boulder, and Y&R NYC.
During that time, Edi won Young Gun Student of the Year for his work on Kinder Surprise, a D&AD inBook for Deutsche Bank, and a Global Best Digital Award for McDonald’s Burger Roulette.
He was then recruited by Doner Detroit to help create work for brands like Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Fiat, and KBB. During his first year, he created award-winning work for KBB.com, helping the brand introduce a whole new website and drastically grow their click-through rate.
After Doner Edi made the move to CP+B in Boulder, Colorado. There he helped relaunch an iconic American brand — Fruit of the Loom. As a lead creative on the brand, he helped produce work that was recognized by the NY Times, AdAge/Creativity Editor’s Pick, TIME and many more news outlets. He also worked on brands like Domino’s, Microsoft and Jell-O.
Two years later Edi decided to pack up his bags once again, but this time to take an around the world backpacking trip to work on his photography skills and re-energize. This trip led Edi back to Germany where he worked for two years as a freelance Creative Director for agencies like Heimat, Jung von Matt, DCMN, DOKYO and Plantage on brands like Heineken, Coca-Cola, Netflix, Mini, Hyundai, Volkswagen and many more.
Edi is Swiss/Mexican (Swexican) and until most recently was an ACD at RPA, Los Angeles where he worked on Honda, Farmers Insurance and Apartments.com. His work for Honda was featured in various publications and won several awards. On Farmers Insurance Edi and his team partners made several spots for the well-recognized “We Know From Experience” campaign. He worked on several pitches and collaborated with internal stakeholders from all departments to bring the team’s ideas to life.
He is also Co-Founder and Creative Director of Viva con Agua California, a non-profit organization dedicated to ensure that all people worldwide have access to clean drinking water.
