My name is Danilo. I am a 21 year-old student with a home base in White Plains, NY. I grew up in the Dominican Republic and am presently study at the University of Delaware.
In 2011, I launched Authentic Ink Graphs and with $200 in capital. At age 19 I scaled the company, opening an office in Los Angeles, CA and peaking at $80,000 in monthly revenue before selling it this past December.
This past fall, I worked on a brand monetization project, taking high engagement social media account and optimizing revenue through advertising and e-commerce.
I’m particularly sympathetic toward less privileged individuals struggling to get into the workforce. I volunteer my time with Lazarus Rising, helping homeless men and women build resumes and apply to jobs. Finding a way to share with and help others is a core value of mine.
Growing up in a third world country, in addition to living in Spain, Los Angeles and New York City, has exposed me to a wide range of cultures and has fundamentally shaped who I am today. Whether it be furthering my knowledge and involvement in the needs of the community around me, or picking up a new skill, I’m focused on contributing to society as well as my own personal growth.
I’m a passionate advocate for human interaction; I prefer conversation to texting and can be found leading people away from the couch to an adventure such as a hike in the woods or a spontaneous trip to City of Brotherly Love. I’m grateful to have a wide array of friends with different backgrounds from all over the world.
My innate sense of curiosity, a result-oriented demeanor and a self-imposed demand for excellence, creates an opportunity for those around me to grow and further themselves. I push myself to take initiatives, embrace new challenges and ultimately continue to learn. Developing strong interpersonal skills and asserting myself in as many different professional and world cultures as possible is the credo that I live by each day.
For my start-up Authentic Ink Graphs which recently crossed the one million dollar revenue threshold.
years of experience
In start up growth, lead generation, sales & pricing strategies --- to name a few.
Through my personal branding experience and helping others, I’ve learned a lot in helping college students become marketable job candidates. I help students by working with them to improve their resume, cover letter and social media profiles. I believe my insight is unique as I provide the perspective of an employer, millennial and job applicant. I’m happy to do this at the cost of paying it forward ~ shoot me an e-mail if you’re looking for some help!
