I am a graphic and motion designer with experience in art direction, motion, print and digital media. Currently, I am an art director specializing motion design for Wilson Dow Group. I head a team of talented motion designers to create animated pieces for experience
My background in motion and graphic design began in commercial post production where I worked for the top post production houses in Chicago such as Swell and Avenue Edit. My experience in designing and animating national commercials, music videos and corporate pieces have helped to shape my present work in experiential design.
In addition, I am an educator and mentor. I teach motion design and visual effects at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Columbia College Chicago. Over the course of my 17 years of education experience, I have designed curriculum for classes in typography, image manipulation and motion design at these colleges and at the The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago.
To me, everything in art is based on design principles. I am a lifelong learner of design which lead me to pursue an MFA in Graphic Design at the Art Academy University.
I am from Mexico City, grew up in the Chicago suburbs and have lived in Chicago most of my adult life. Outside of my professional work, I practice figurative painting and drawing. My work has been shown at several art events in Chicago.
