Chris Diaz:

Financial Guy
Chris is the only person in his family who is not afraid of numbers. In fact, he loves numbers! Even numbers. Odd numbers. Prime numbers. All types!

His love of numbers led him to Florida International University where he earned a Bachelor's degree in International Business and Management and a Master's degree in Finance.

Chris has put his skills to use at a law firm, advertising agency and wealth management firm. This has allowed him to view the world of finance through distinct and contrasting lenses. This unique perspective on finance drives Chris to maintain Miami Ad School Punta Cana in pristine fiscal health to achieve its goals of cultivating and nurturing the best creative minds in the region.

In his spare time, Chris enjoys golfing and helping financially clueless creatives stay on budget and forecast future cash flows.
