I was born in Santander in 1989, I moved to Madrid in 2007 to begin my studies in Architecture at UPM. During that time I discovered the world of Advertising, Audiovisual Realization and Design. Therefore, I began to acquire knowledge in these fields both in a self-taught way and in various schools.
(…)I fell in love with 3D Illustration and animation.
After Finishing my degree and working as a CG Architect during 2 years, I decided to take a time, ran my own art gallery (ESPOSITIVO) and focused myself on design, illustration and motion graphics.

6. Knowing what you know now, what would be your advice for people in the same area?
Don’t think about which degree is better than the other to get a job or earn more money. Think about what makes you happy, learn it, practice it and repeat it. If you find something that you love to do, you will dedicate time to it, you will improve and that will make you happy, so you will dedicate more time and you will be better. Then work and money will follow.
