Fan of the simple things with a little room for indulgence. Islander, bilingual, visual thinker & Xennial. Made during the analog 80's, developed through the 90's digital era.

My uncle, a professional VO talent, inspired me to pursue creativity (he doesn't know though). When I realized he was the voice of Tony the Tiger and Toucan Sam, I kept asking myself who were the creators behind those ideas. Fifteen years later, with all its ups and downs, I'm still in love with the highly addictive creative process. I've been lucky to have worked on cool/demanding accounts with diversified teams from local to global networks.

As a side project, I embraced my passion for cars by collaborating as an automotive journalist. Learned to pronounce car brands just after my alphabet, so consider me a hard-core car enthusiast. Click here to check my reviews (sorry, only en Español).
