Digital Animation

From a young age, I’ve had a passion for the arts. It wasn’t until I saw one particular movie that not only showed me imagination but courage, hope, and to always believe in yourself that I had a revelation of what I wanted to do for my future. That movie was Star Wars.

Growing up in Mexico, I learned not only ingenuity but also creativity to achieve whatever goals I wanted to achieve in life. That same drive and ambition continues to fuel my life and career not only in school but also in my current job.

Currently, I work for the University of Colorado Denver as a student assistant in the development and construction of websites. I am also a senior studying 3D Animation in the College of Arts and Media. My early passion continues to push and fuel my vision, however, that vision has grown and evolved with me. I want to inspire future generations as I was inspired and demonstrate that no matter where one comes from with passion, hard work, and commitment those dreams can come true.

I eagerly anticipate what the future holds for my professional career with the education I have earned. With guidance of my professors, I feel ready and able to face whatever challenges life presents to me.
