I was born and raised in Paraguay (small country in the middle of South America). After finishing high school, I moved to Florida to attend Ringling College of Art and Design, where I graduated in 2006 with a degree on Computer Animation.
From Florida I moved to California to work at DreamWorks Animation, which is where I've been since! My first movie was Kung Fu Panda, where I animated some background rhinos =)
Besides being an animator at DreamWorks, I'm involved in different initiatives to jump start the animation industry in my home country. This involves organizing conferences, offering workshops, teaching online classes and any other activity that would encourage my fellow Paraguayans to try out animation!
