Urvil James Villaruel –Toronto based photographer, videographer, writer, web designer and communications specialist.

A creative self-starter, I have been practicing visual and written communications for the past seven years. Initially handling promotions for my own garage bands, I eventually began working for clients; assisting them in the promotion of their own brands via social media, photography, videography, brand strategy, website design, layout and copywrite. Clients include: In the Spirit Yoga Studio & Wine Lounge, Bikram Yoga, Akhanda Yoga, Moksha Yoga, Yoga For Hope, Energy Martial Arts Academy, Metro Care Health Academy, Bayfair Daycare and TnB Theories.

I possess a keen eye for visuals and express this in all aspects of my work. I am also no stranger to new adventures and have had experience in planning, filming and editing a YouTube mini-series held across the Asia Pacific, encompassing: Hong Kong, Japan and the Philippines. As such, I am quite knowledgable in social media construction and design, and utilize my web, photography and videography talents to help clients get their intended messages across.

I am an eager and avid learner, always willing to try new things to continually push myself and advance my skill set. Having recently completed a corporate communications and public relations graduate certificate program at Centennial College to complement my degree in marketing from UOIT, I am now looking for a position within the lifestyle branding sector, with an emphasis on social media and web design.
