I'm an illustrator who's failed dream to become a Magical Astronaut led me to discover my new passion: Storytelling. 

I absolutely adore to explore all the possible and interesting ways to use storytelling to captivate an audience's imagination. I find myself constantly seeking challenging opportunities to grow and improve!

Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, currently living in San Francisco Bay Area. Currently Lead Designer at GoldieBlox Inc.

Visual Development, Character Design and Children's books are my primary fields of experience but in the resent years I've started to branch out into Toy Concept and Development as well as Mobile Apps and, as of late, Marketing.
