My Immigrant Journey: From Humble Roots to Web Design Success

I was born and raised in Peru and came to America as a kid with my family in search of a better life. It was rough learning English and navigating the challenges of adapting to a new country.

Fascinated by my first airplane trip and my desire to travel to places like Paris and Brazil, I enrolled in travel school to become a travel agent. This journey eventually led me to a fulfilling 25-year career with American Express Travel.

Working for Amex was exciting because I got to use my brains instead of my hands for the first time. I finally had a desk, a computer, and opportunities for growth. I worked during the day and went to college in the evenings for many years to pursue a degree in web authoring & multimedia.

Armed with a new degree, I chose to stay with Amex because it allowed me to work on exciting and challenging projects with Microsoft, and I liked the people too. Over the years, I was promoted several times, from travel agent, to programmer, to team leader, and finally to a global manager position, responsible for strategy & overseeing team members across the globe.

And when the pandemic hit in 2020, I lost my job.

How Minimo Studio Was Born

After dusting myself off, I recalled my side hustle of building websites. One particular project involved creating a website for a local towncar service in Seattle, complete with a reservation system. The sleek web design and simple functionality of the reservation system impressed Microsoft and played a pivotal role in the business signing Microsoft as their biggest client.

This experience is what drove my desire to help other small business owners achieve success. Thus, Minimo was born – a web design business aimed at helping entrepreneurs thrive through a great online presence. Minimo Studio is the product of my passion for technology and design, and I’m humbled to contribute to the growth of fellow entrepreneurs.
