I was born in the Canary Islands (Spain) but I grew up in Madrid. Growing up I was into films, cartoons, skateboarding, comics, and drawing. In 1994 I moved to the US to study art. I went to School and graduated in 1998. I ended up staying in the US and was lucky enough to work at great companies such as Will Vinton Studios (now Laika), Click3X, Wildbrain and ILM/Lucasfilms.

I also met some really great friends along the way. I worked at Pixar Animation Studios from 2002 until 2012, a place that has taught me so much in the last 10 years. I work at Paramount Pictures since 2013. I love pretty much anything that has to do with Films and Art. I feel very lucky for doing what I'm doing and have fun at what I do. From here, I want to thank my familia and friends and all those people that helped me along the way.
