Since I can remember I have been fascinated by the amazing world of graphics, illustration (mostly by comic books) and design (I am absolutely fascinated by the pharmaceutical products design and later on by magazines and records), this has been my main drive in education and my main goal in life; to produce visual work that amazes the audiences. With that in mind I have tried to pursue my employment in that direction so that I may gain the experience and skills necessary in the industry.

I graduated in Graphic Communication taking the Illustration pathway at the University of Northamton (UK), where i lived for eight years. I enjoy challenges and projects that allow me to evolve and create new techniques and develop the ones I already know of My experience as a professional has taught me the importance of talking and understanding the needs and points of view of the client as well as time management.

Generally speaking, I am a very laid back guy who enjoys the quiet life, but sill i like a lot to do loads of stuff. I am a very active love going to gigs, museums and stuff. I also like to "play" music (what a great invention garageband is !!). I also love to go out with my mates to have a beer and have some "tapas" and "pintxos". Usually i have a very healthy life and i love to do exercise, over all bodybuilding. I think friends are one of the most important things in life and i never have enough.
