A small introduction about my self
At the age of 20 and after dropping university (Computer Science, ITESM) in Mexico, I decided to move to Canada and study a full-time Digital Design program in order to improve and polish a strong sense of motion and interactivity that I developed during my early years while studying and working part-time as a graphic/web designer at a small web design shop in Monterrey. On August 2005, I started my professional journey to take my skills to the next level by enrolling to the Digital Design program at Vancouver Film School. During graduation at VFS, I earned 3 awards: Best Interaction Design, Best Team project and Best Final project which helped me to land a job at Blast Radius agency as an Interface Developer (Flash Developer) and later on, becoming the Paid Media Lead for the Starbucks account. During the following 8 years, I had the opportunity to work on various projects for some high-caliber brands such as: Nike, Disney, Starbucks, BMW, Nokia, Electronic Arts and Hasbro.
Recently, I decided to launch two independent projects: Perfil Empresarial (web consulting) on 2011 and DP Cinema (video production) on 2013 as a way for me to feed my passion for continuous learning on two fields that I really enjoy working on.Download resume (PDF)
