About Me


I am a Barcelona-based, 10+ years experienced 3D artist, with a degree in filmmaking and a strong cinematic style.

I completed my studies at ESCAC (Barcelona film school) and specialized in postproduction. Over the years, I've acquired extensive experience working as a 3D artist on several commercials, music videos and feature films. As you can see in my portfolio, I worked on "Death, Love & Robots (Netflix)", and another yet-to-be annonced Netflix TV show. In the advertising field, I've worked on Footlocker, BBC, Dunkin Donuts, Seat and many others commercials.

Although I can be considered a 3D generalist (mostly because I learnt how to do everything for my own projects), I've specialized on particle simulations. You can see the kind of work I enjoy doing taking a look at my Instagram, a mix of technical+artistic approach to 3D.

By no means can I be considered a compositor, but I'm competent with Fusion, which makes me very resourceful when it comes to solve problems too complicated to tackle with a pure 3D approach.

I also have experience as a live-action director, skills that I have adapted to the virtual world, as you can see here.

I worked as a VFX supervisor for the feature film "Second Origin" and created the opening titles for the historical TV show "Counts of Barcelona". These titles were an Official Selection on the South by Southwest (SxSW 2018) film festival hold in Austin, Texas. 

I also create 3D illustrations. You can check my Artstation profile

I'm an avid gamer and love videogame cinematic intros with a passion.
