    Illustrator and designer

    Madrid, Spain

I am an illustrator and designer from Madrid, Spain with over fifteen years of experience. During my college years, I completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Design from the CENP and a Master's Degree in Digital Design from the IED (Istituto Europeo di Design.) All the while complimenting my studies by working for several advertising agencies. Since graduation I have worked with technology consultant firms, and design and advertising agencies as an illustrator, UX/UI designer, and graphic designer. Because of my creative nature and my love for illustration, you will probably find me in my spare time experimenting with new techniques and working on personal projects.
