About me

I am an intelligent and enterprising individual. In 2016, I graduated from Latin America's first film school in Mexico City (CUEC) and was offered an opportunity to further study animation in Birmingham, England for a year. I accepted this once-in-a-lifetime challenge, which offered me invaluable lessons in the importance of teamwork, cultural awareness and resourcefulness. I embrace challenge with utmost enthusiasm and always make sure that what I commit to is completed in due time and form. I take pride in going the extra mile for a project I believe in and have had enough experience in successful guerrilla filmmaking to offer quick and creative alternatives to keep productions within budget and timeframes. I'm honest and level-headed, which makes me a valuable collaborator on the production team. As a recent graduate, I am seeking to apply these skills to gain professional experience.
