EDUCATION

I have a BA in Visual Communication Graphic Design from California State University, Chico (link).

ILLUSTRATION

I recently completed work on my superhero graphic novel “TREP” and am starting work on Volume 2 in 2017. I have a strong interest in teaching and created an educational how-to draw video series called "Hike Find Draw".

ANIMATION

I animated, edited and helped concept the main titles of the romantic comedy feature film “Her Minor Thing”. I also co-animated 100 episodes of my original series, “Traveling Gringos”, becoming the world’s first daily animated Web series.

Graphic Design

I have produced work for a variety of clients that include UnitedHealthcare, PacifiCare, UnitedWay, Polar Latitudes, Day Runner, Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District, 50 Corridor Transportation Management Association, Sacramento Area Council of Governments, and Sanger Unified School District.

CONSTRUCTION

Starting in 2013, my wife and I designed, developed, built and sold two houses in San Carlos, Costa Rica. We have property for sale with great views of Arenal Volcano and close to lots of natural hot springs!

INTERNational Experience

I have dual citizenship (United States + Costa Rica). I have traveled extensively to 16 countries. I am highly proficient in Spanish, having lived in Central America for over a decade. I have some abilities in Portuguese and French. You can contact me using the links at the bottom right. Thanks for stopping by!

Pura vida,
