Bachelor of Science by City Universty of Washington in 1998, I start my professional career working in administrative / financial departments of several multinationals. Soon I realize that in these types of environments I do not feel comfortable so I do not doubt when, in 2004, I have the opportunity to make the leap to animation production in what at that time was Renderboy (later it would become Ilion Animation Sudios), for his first film: Planet 51 (2009). I start as Production Assistant and, over the years, I am evolving with the project, to finish as Production Coordinator.
In early 2011 I contacted Lighbox Animation Studios to join their first project Tadeo Jones (2012), where I was fortunate to continue planning their next two lengths: Capture the Flag (2015) and Tadeo Jones 2 (finishing shooting currently).
