Francisco Guerrero

GRID Co-founder, Executive Editor

Francisco, or Paco, Guerrero is the Executive Editor at GRID. He isn't just a stellar photographer. He holds a degree in Anthropology and Communications from Goldsmiths College, London. He has been shooting travel and lifestyle images for a number of international clients while based in Spain and the Philippines. And as it turns out, this seemingly Spanish-bred Tito also possesses a surprising familiarity with Feng Shui—so much so that he is responsible for a recent overhaul in the GRID office. Thanks for the good juju, Paco.
