I am an art director, graphic designer and illustrator currently living in the DC Metro Area.

I have an MFA in illustration from the Academy of Art University, in San Francisco, CA, and a BA from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, in Mexico City.

I won the 2006 Children Book Story FILIJ Award, for my story Quisiera ser un León (I’d Like to be a Lion) which was published by CONACULTA in Mexico.

Two Direct Marketing campaigns I worked on while working at Wikreate won DMA Silver ECHO Awards.
