About Me

My passion has always been related to characters, their designs and the stories I could tell about them. I've been drawing characters for as long as I can remember. And I guess, not happy with just drawing them, I persued a career in animation, so I could bring those characters to life.


I was born in Peru, where I first got a Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic Design. The program was fun but I wanted to do more with my life than designing logos and business cards (like I mentioned before... I'm obsessed with characters!). So after I graduated I moved to Florida where I attended Full Sail University and got my Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Animation.


At Full Sail I had the chance to meet amazing people (teachers and students) who inspired me and pushed me beyond my limits.


After graduation I started working in animation, graphic design and online games; and had the opportunity of working for clients such as eBay, Mattel, Hasbro, etc.
