I'm a multidisciplinary Colombian Graphic Designer based in California - USA. I lived for about 2 years in Hamburg - Germany and 6 years in Poland.  I'm 38 years old and I have over 18 years experience in different fields as advertising, prints, font design, corporate identity, web design, tv, video games and mobile games for clients and projects in Latin America, United States and Europe. Currently I'm working for the video game company ACTIVISION - BLIZZARD as SENIOR UI ARTIST I and previously at GOOD GAME STUDIO in Germany as a SENIOR UI ARTIST for an unannounced AAA game and a variety of mobile games; and at CD PROJEKT RED in Poland, as a UI ARTIST in the AAA projects THE WITCHER 3 - WILD HUNT and CYBERPUNK 2077. 

As image lover/creator/explorer I started my professional career back in Colombia working for small advertising agencies even before started to study at the university. I’m graduated with honors and my career has been echoed in areas as corporate identity, typeface design (I have created over 20 of them) and especially illustration. 

Parallel to my professional work I’m developing consistently personal works with which I had also won international recognitions and been exhibited at various events and countries; my artworks are as well constantly reviewed in publications of art and design as Imagine FX Magazine, 2D Artists, Proyecto Diseño, DPI Magazine, among others, and is also featured in specialized blogs of design and / or illustration due to the expressive quality of my work.

I'm happily married with the visual artist Weronika Kwiatkowska Forero.
