Summary

With a background in Archaeology from 2004 to 2010 (both as volunteer and professional) and Fine Arts from 2010 onwards, I've been freelancing in Visual Arts since 2004, working mainly as Illustrator, Designer and Cartoonist for individuals, companies and events.

In the years I've managed to unite the passion for design and illustration with my love for games by having the opportunity to work with video game developers, being one of my most recent projects the award winning indie game "Missing Translation" (2015).

Specialities: Illustration, Pixel Art, 3D Voxel Art, Character Design, Game Design.

Education: Licentiate in Archaeology (2008) // Licentiate in Fine Arts (2013)
