Hi! I'm a Storyboard Artist, Illustrator and Animator based in Austin, Texas.

Born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley, I grew up watching and being influenced by animated television and movies. Among my favorites were Mulan, Spongebob Squarepants, and Avatar: The Last Airbender.

I've been inspired to animate ever since my childhood, I seek to inspire the next generation of future animators just as I was.


My range of work includes illustration, motion design and 3D modeling. I aspire to work as a storyboard artist in either television or feature animation.
