I am a professional animator living in Argentina. I have been working for animation studios for more than 10 years.
I started as a cleanup artist for a feature film that combined real actors with an animated character ("Cartoon Family, The Movie")
. After that, I went on working in commercials, TV serials and feature films as an assistant animator for the local market. ("Mercano the Martian"
, "Los Pintín"
, "Verano animado"
In 2001, I entered Hook Up Animation Studios for works for the global market. There I had the pleasure of working in two educative Winnie-the-Pooh DVD releases ("Winnie-The-Poohs ABC and 123"
), the opening for TV serial Lilo & Stich
in 2003, and lots of promotional spots for Cartoon Network.
In 2005 I worked as 2D animator for a Mexican feature film ("Una película de Huevos"
) trough Hook Up Animation Studios.
A year afterwards, I turned into a Flash animator for promotional spots for Cartoon Network again, for "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends"
I went on animation as a freelancer after that. Being on freelance work, I can organize a schedule of my own between the lapses I work for clients:

and the hours I use to animate my own ideas and turn them into shorts films ("Palito & Varita"
) or other formats ("4 Elements -project-"
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on December 3rd, 1974, so that adds up 35 years old.
My mother is an elementary school teacher, and my father is a graphic designer living now in Ecuador.
After graduating in Mariano Moreno High School, I did 2 years at Luis Ordóñezs Cartoon School. Fresh after that, I entered the animation business as a trainee with animation director Rodolfo Mutuverría first, and as an artist for the feature film Cartoon Family, The Movie after. From then on, I worked in lots of commercials, TV spots, short films, and features.
Im still living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in a flat with Fabián (my partner) and Nikita and Dalila (our adorable cats). Fabián *fabianfucci
is an artist, too. We usually work together. We are a great team. Other facts about me:
I don't believe in any particular religion, as I don't need gods with his many rules for life in the light, blah blah.
I consider that this very world and life is Paradise. This. Every religion claims it has the knowledge about afterlife (in the case it exists). Everything is based on faith. To be true, I prefer the mysteries of the unknown. I only believe in the voice of concience, as it is the one thing that tells you goods from bads. Everyone has this voice inside, you just have to stop by and listen to it, in order to be sincere with oneself. That's all. Everything in nature is beatiful, so I'm ok with that and I let other people be ok with that, too. So, I live my life trying to do the things I like - making drawings, animation, training Tae Kwon-Do, going to the movies, and so on. And I try hard to do these things for a long time. I mean, all of this needs many hours of practice, and a lot of dedication. But satisfaction of seeing your projects finished come true the way you dreamed once, is the best paying gig.
please send me a note.
