I Am Also the Chief Creator at High Ground Creative

Let me tell you about my experience, capabilities and track-record. See, what I (we) offer is not theoretical or fluff.  Behind what I do is 25+ years of experience, successes and failures.

I have worked for large corporations to small companies to everything in between from Tech Companies to the Collegiate Sector to the Construction Industry.

I have done it, still am doing it and most importantly I continue to learn, grow and adapt to changes in technology, marketing, etc.

I don’t share this to brag, but just to let you know that there is depth behind this company and the services we provide.  I have a proven track record in helping many companies Get Noticed, Increase Their Leads, Grow Their Sales, Elevate Their Brand.

So, what does all that mean for you?

Well, “WE” at High Ground, yes, we have a VERY talented team, offer and deliver big business creative, design and marketing services for small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs.

I am passionate about all things creative and also about helping businesses grow and succeed! We at High Ground, will help you do just that! Want to know more about me, personally?  Read on 🙂

Hey There. My Name is Javier Santana. Sorry, No Relation to “Carlos”.

I am a 50-year young father of 3 beautiful daughters.  Meghan, aka Chicka Artistica (23), Bella (18) and Grace (11).

I am a happily married husband.  My bride’s name is Lisa and we’ve been married 25 years.

I was born in Puerto Rico and grew up in the Northern Virginia/DC Area.

I love sports in general, but baseball and football are my favorite with baseball being first.  I am a HUGE fan of the Washington Nationals and Washington Redskins…ummm, I mean the “Washington Team”…don’t judge, especially if you are a Braves, Phillies, Mets, Cowboys, Eagles or NY Giants.

I love the creative process!  It is something that I treasure, love to participate in. I also have cool nerdy tendencies, being a HUGE Star Wars, Harry Potter and Disney fan!

I don’t like political correctness!  I don’t like the status quo!  

I like to call out the “elephant in the room”, bring things to the light and hash things out!

For those of you who like Harry Potter, I am a Ravenclaw. Ravenclaw’s are original, of ready mind, intelligent, have wit, wisdom and are creative.  They express their creativity through imagination and abstract thought.  I think that the Sorting Hat kinda nailed it on that one.

• I am not a Google or Microsoft hater!

 I am major coffee aficionado/freak!  Love me a Hot Venti Americano or an Iced Quad Caramel Macchiato with extra Caramel Drizzle.

 I love to paint in watercolors and draw but not able to do much of it because of time.  This is something that I intend to change in the near future!!!

 I also LOVE a juicy burger and fries!
 I love a walk in the woods (by myself)

Hopefully this paints some what of a picture of the type of person I am.
