About me

Born and raised in El Salvador. In 2003, at the age of 15, I moved to California with my mother in pursuit of the "American Dream". Graduated from The Art Institute of California (Boo, I know) in 2012 with a degree in Media Arts & Animation. Since graduation, I have worked as a freelance artist on many projects. My passion lies in creating characters and telling stories with them. My biggest joy is being able to to share art that makes people laugh and be moved by it.

When I'm not drawing, you can find me playing video games, catching up on shows/movies, daydreaming about the corgi I will one day have or reading a good book.


Hey you made it! Thank you for taking a look, I'd love to work with you on your next project! Feel free to shoot me an email!
