I love telling stories. I have worked for years as a book illustrator, as a creator for commercial characters and, what I am more passionate about, as art director for animation.
I am a graduate of Graphic Design from Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana, later pursued studies in filmmaking at the Mexican Asociation of Independent Filmmakers (AMCI); and I am currently attending the theatre directing studies at CasAzul Artes Escenias Argos. I dream of one day to direct a movie, a play, or maybe both.
I have tried to create ways and platforms that combine inclusion with entertainment: I produced for two seasons the digital LGBT+ channel, and later, in a significant alliance with the National Commision for Human Rights,
My 2019 documentary short Traviatas, which portraits the life of three trans women that has broke paradigms in Mexican society, is having its run in national and international film festivals, such as OUT Fest in Los Angeles, Kashish Mumbai International Queer Film Festival in India, and Shorts Mexico. It is a three AMCI award winner for best documentary short, best edition and best script.
I have also been awarded three times with the Quorum bronce Prize for best illustration, which I received at the iconic Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, and have been proud to participate in such urban art movements like Cow Parade (“100% de vaca”) and Gritos (“Grito por la felicidad”).
Some of my work with brands as Coca Cola, P&G, Sabritas, Danone, Gamesa, Cuervo, Del Valle, Nestlé, Quacker and Nickelodeon, are the result of my frequent collaborationships with global agencies like Landor, Ciberfilms, Y&R, ISD, Emblem, Tailro y Starbrands. You can also see my work in books from a vast list of publishing houses, like Santillana, Richmond, Televisa or the National Institute for Adult Education.
I am completely sure that in each project we can generate a small change in the world, and what’s better if that’s a positive impact.
