Ever since I was a kid, I had fun recording videos with my family's 8mm camera, making arts and crafts and "reading stories to my mom" from a blank hardcover notebook I had.
Years later, I started my major in Robotics Engineering in Mexico, only to realize my heart and passion had always been in storytelling. I earnt my degree in Animation and Digital Art at Tecnológico de Monterrey and a Diploma in Classical Animation at Vancouver Film School, as part of an exchange program.
After making 2 animated shortfilms, I worked as a 3D character animator for AnimaArte Studios’s upcoming animated film “Heriberto y Demetrio”, and thanks to a Mexican national grant for the arts by FONCA-CONACYT, I moved to San Francisco to pursue my Master's Degree in Visual Development at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA.
