MAIN PORTFOLIO >> www.leograbau.com <<


My strength is helping you visualize your own equation. Intuitively most of you already know what you want. And recognize it when you see it. Through a simple exercise in exploration I get you there quicker than the rest.

Call me 438 886 4704 and let me hear what you are trying to accomplish.
Or email me your request direction@leograbau.com

I bring a fresh flavor to your campaign and collateral material. Perhaps it is my Colombian heritage. Perhaps it is my youthful outlook on life. Perhaps it’s the latest training in advanced digital & multimedia production. Or maybe it’s simply a case of I love my craft.

Whatever it is I think it’s something you might want to take advantage of.
From seeing it to making it yours, that’s where I belong!
