ABOUT ME

After graduating with a BA in Sociology,  I devoted myself to moving images for nearly 20 years. From design and photography to animation and live-action, I acted as an animator, art director, writer, editor, colorist, and director. Starting as a motion designer, I moved up the ranks to become a creative director overseeing and guiding the development and execution of award-winning projects from inception to completion, supervising and mentoring in-house artists and external vendors throughout Latin America and the US. My experience equipped me with an in-depth understanding of creative workflows. Over the years, my interest in image-making has led me to pursue a deeper understanding of storytelling, photography, and cinema by attending Robert McKee's Story Seminar, UCLA's Producing Professional Program, UCLA Extension Directing, and Film and TV Story Development courses, Magnum Photos online workshops with Matt Black, Bieke Depoorter, Gregory Halpern, and Alec Soth, and color grade training with Dado Valentic. My academic background has given me the tools and perspective to tackle complex problems and abstract ideas. Data and research drive me to create compelling, engaging, and sophisticated projects. I live in Los Angeles with my wife and our rescued dog Taco.
