I have worked as an artist/writer in motion pictures, television, comic books and strips since the dawn of time. At least it feels like that anyway. I penned the daily Mickey Mouse strip and worked as an animator and story artist on at least a dozen or more feature animated films for both The Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios. Though retired, I continue to work as a consultant for Walt Disney and am currently writing a new book that celebrates the Disney legacy.

I’m a big believer in the power of great stories. I am a motion graphics artist and animator. Mexican by birth and Canadian of heart. I began my career in Toronto collaborating and directing projects for CBC, NBC Sports, MLB Network, DIscovery, Food Network, ESPN and many others. After my seven year Canadian adventure, I’m back in my hometown of Merída, Yucatan where I am Founder and Creative Director at Don Porfirio, a Mexican motion graphics and broadcast design studio with global vision and local soul.
