As an artist I have developed a variety of skills over the years. I grew up in Madrid, Spain; where I attended art school and focused primarily on sketching, painting and sculpting.Having a passion for movies, I relocated to Los Angeles in 1987 and began working in special visual effects for film production, miniatures, makeup effects, puppets, costumes and props.

With the advent of the digital era, I transitioned to computer graphics for the video game industry in 1993, creating environments,3D models and 2D textures. I am proficient with 3D sofware such as Maya, Max or Softimage and 2D software like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge

After my latest project, I have become expirienced with compositing in Adobe After Effects on WindowsVista, editing with imovie on a Mac and creating my own websites with animations using Adobe Flash and AdobeDreamweaver. In my portfolio, under the "video reel" tab you can see my latest graphics demo, showing many samples of my work over the incredible, yet very rewarding 23 years of my career in California.
