Biography

I am originally from Caracas, Venezuela. I studied Illustration and Sculpture. My career as a digital artist started in the video game industry in San Francisco around 1995. In 1997 I received an offer to come work at Disney Feature Animation. I have since worked at Dreamworks Animation, Sony Pictures Animation and have also done work for Hasbro, Baobab, ON Animation and others. Some of the films I worked on include Tarzan, Treasure Planet, Chicken Little, Meet the Robinsons, 9, Kung Fu Panda, Cloudy 2, The Smurfs and The Star. In addition, I worked on many shorts and specials and probably three times as many films in development that never saw the light of day. I have had the opportunity to work as a visual development artist, art director and production designer.

Currently, I work at an independent studio in Hollywood creating concept art for an animated feature.

I also continue to create my personal work in my studio and occasionally display it…
