AIFL Alumni Interview
Jair was born in Hackensack, New Jersey and moved to Miami when he was seven years old. He was enrolled in D.A.S.H. Magnet High School (Design Architecture Senior High) to study Architecture, thereby later realizing that Graphic Design was a better fit for him. AiFL was an attractive institution to me because I was interested in applying newly acquired skills immediately. Although theory is important, I was more interested in the practical (hands-on) approach to learning that is offered at AiFL.

Jair points to AiFL for many of his career accomplishments. Attending AiFL has impacted by success immensely. Due to the fact that AiFL has many different careers paths to choose from, I was able to find the right one for me and at the same time explore other avenues by interacting with the various students/designers. I have brought these experiences with me to the professional world. Although I am a Graphic Designer, the experiences I have had with other students at AiFL has given me input into other areas such as Multimedia, Flash and Web Design; all of which has made me a more well rounded designer and a more valuable assets to my employer.

His advice to students is, Take advantage of the opportunities presented to you at AiFL and elsewhere to gain more knowledge of related fields to the one you have chosen as you will soon realize that there are may areas where the disciplines overlap one another. Also, although you will need to adapt to fit the needs of your employers it is important not to forget and/or horn techniques of your craft that you have acquired as a graduate of AiFL.
