About Me

From an early age, I have been interested in technology and games. I was lucky enough as a kid to own all the major consoles on the market (including the Panasonic 3DO!). My favorite console of all time is the Neo Geo (for the record).

I started a graphic design studio when I was 18 years old and successfully ran that until I decided to move to California.

After graduating from The Art Institute in Santa Monica I started working in Video Games for Heavy Iron Studios where I had the pleasure to work with a fantastic team of animators that has shapes me as a rigger. Since then I love to partner with animators on creating the best possible rigs. It’s a team effort!

I am now managing teams of riggers and tech artists. I am currently working at Facebook Reality Labs where I have the pleasure to manage a fantastic team of tech artists and together we are helping building the Metaverse.

The Art of Rigging

Rigging is a great balance between Tech and Art. I had the pleasure of working on very cartoony projects and more realistic ones. I worked in Games, Feature Film, TV Animation and Cinematics


In my career I built a couple of rigging and pipelines from scratch, and I worked with talented python developers at places like Blizzard Cinematics to revamp their In-Game pipeline. Making tools is very rewarding to me.

Managing Teams

Managing teams is a privilege. I love helping other people succeed and enabling them to do the best work they can. I enjoy working with the people I support to remove obstacles for my team by introducing efficient processes.
