Make things happen. Make people dream. Be a positive influence.
2D animation and visual development are my area of expertise within Film making and design, besides teaching. I extended my education as 3D artist in Germany and Denmark.
My personal work reflects an especial interest and research on collage, textures and mix of techniques to exalt human feelings, by engaging animation with fashion, sciences and education.
For what I enjoy working on different projects, either shorts, commercials or features as new challenges to explore new ideas, concepts and artistic approaches.
I am flexible but disciplined regarding to deadlines and structures, easy going and cooperative to build a good environment. Innovative at problem solving and passionate.
