Gabe Ayala is the Creative Services Brand Manager at the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. He is responsible for the visual representation of the company’s vision and message.
Mr. Ayala brought years of marketing and creative services to his position at HSF. Prior to joining, he worked at the boutique marketing firm, CT&Co, where he worked directly on several client accounts, including Asics America and Rdio. In addition to his work with CT&Co, he maintained his own consulting clients and worked as a freelance photographer, producing content for SBE, World of Wonder Productions, and Intermix, among others. His photographs have been published in Rolling Stone, US Weekly, and OK Magazine.
Mr. Ayala graduated with B.A. degrees in Studio Art and Comparative Literature from the University of California, Irvine. While there, he served on the administrative council of the LGBTQIA student group, showcased in a juried undergraduate art show, and oversaw marketing and communication efforts for his graduating class’s senior exhibition.
With both parents having had careers in the field of education, he grew up understanding how important it is to receive a college degree. Watching his mother balance work with earning her doctorate degree from the University of Southern California was an inspiration to him. Mr. Ayala looks forward continuing to serve the vision of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund for years to come.
