He was born in Pamplona-Iruña (Spain) and worked for many years as a creative interior designer and airbrushing specialist before moving into the audio-visual sector as a director specialized in Digital Animation. He worked for several years as a digital artist as well as participating in the design of several sets for various films. He then completed his education in Computer Generated Imaginary CGI in Madrid, while he took charge of editing the short film "Searching for the polar decline" and all its digital effects. Later he started working into a creative team dedicated to the creation of digital content for museums and multimedia shows, becoming director of several very successful audio-visual works. Thanks to that he got a very relevant post as he became responsible for conducting the special effects and digital archaeology recreations for museums in the Basque Country like the Oiasso Museum of the Romanization in Irun or the Pre-industrialization Museum in Legazpi among others. He became a freelance and worked with artist Javier Longobardo in the production of 3D musical videos with bands such as Ladytron, The Planets or MUM among others. He embarked on his first animation film "Gernika" along with the painter J.L. Zumeta which was released in 2012 on the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Gernika in the Victoria Eugenia Theatre during the celebration of the X Human Rights Film Festival in Donostia-San Sebastian. The film was also selected in numerous international film festivals and got several awards including the award for "Best Film on Disarmament" at the Um Film per la Paz Festival in Italy and the award for "Best Basque Short Film" at the Festival Cortada of Vitoria-Gasteiz. He also produced the exhibition "From Canvas to display” about his short film Gernika in Donostia-San Sebastián, which was widely acclaimed by the attending audience of over 4000 visitors. Nowadays he combines his work as a freelance in special effects for films with his expertise in videomapping creation.
