As an adjunct game art professor at Miami Dade College, I teach and mentor students in various aspects of game design, animation, development, and production. With over four years of experience in the game industry, I have worked on multiple projects as a 3D modeler, animator, and visual developer, creating immersive and engaging environments, characters, and effects for different platforms and genres. I hold a Master of Fine Arts in Visual Effects and 3D Animation, a Master of Arts in Game Development, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Arts and Animation, where I honed my skills in animation, digital painting, and after effects. My mission is to inspire and empower the next generation of game artists with my passion, creativity, and expertise.


Join us in this dynamic workshop and take a leap into the world of animation. Whether you aim to create your own animated films, work in the animation industry, or simply explore a new artistic avenue, this workshop will provide you with the skills and knowledge to animate with confidence and creativity.
