(All artists have to answer the same 10 questions.)
1. First and Last Name
2. Where are you from? And where are you currently living?
I’m from Valencia, Spain, currently living on Madrid.
3. What’s your main influences?
I have always been inspired by movies, since I was a child. Nowadays, I would say my main influences are music, fashion and movies. But I also get inspiration from many kind of arts.
4. How was your path until this moment? How did you start?
I’ve found my path accidentally. I’ve dreamed to be a scriptwriter when I was a child, so I started to study for it. A good day a friend show me a video from Tavo, which made me change my mind and I fell in love with motion graphics.
Then I moved to Madrid to keep learning about design and motion, and after some time and hard work, I get a reel that helped me found a job on one of the best studios in Madrid: Serial Cut.
Nowadays, I’m working as an Art & Motion Director at Pleid Studio and freelancing for my own clients.
5. Where do you see yourself next?
I just hope that I can still be doing what I like, and enjoy working, no matter where, no matter how. I can proudly say my job is my hobby.
I have a lot to learn and I will keep pushing forever to be a more complete artist and a better person.
I can proudly say my job is my hobby.
6. Knowing what you know now, what would be your advice for people in the same area?
I feel really lucky on doing what I like, and that’s what my advice would be: enjoy what you do.
And of course never stop learning. Surround by people and you can ask doubts and pay attention to what they do.
I always recommend people to start working on a studio and don’t rush, learn all you can and take all the time you need.
