"My passion for animation started with my motivation "to give life to the characters I imagined". I liked drawing and imagining how they would move. Shortly after, I began to be interested in advertising. When I watched TV I loved to wait for the ads. For me, they were small stories told in only a few seconds.
I studied the Bachelor's Degree of Advertising and Public Relations (University of Seville, Spain), focusing on graphic design and photography. During the degree, I worked as a graphic designer in Avantine. When I finished it, I decided to study 3D computer graphics in Animum Creativity Advanced School, two years after I graduated at the Master's Degree of 3D Character Creation and Animation, with the specialization in advanced animation film. Right after that, I had the opportunity to be part of Gökotta Studio, a gamification web and videogames company, where I met great professionals, with whom I make Plutonium free game."
