Hi Mark,

I admire the work you do at Third Rail and your positioning. I'd rather be considered a creative-doer than a traditional title because titles limit creative possibilities. 

I am a creative. Full stop. But I manifest that creativity through directing, motion design, and animation. 

I could collaborate well with you and your team at Third Rail.

Below, I've included a lot of work showing my capabilities of working with familiar brands across diverse media channels and budgets.

Wish you the best,


Amazon Pay | Benefits

A Campaign for Amazon Pay's benefits. I directed and produced these spots with a modest budget, so we had a proper crew and cast. I also designed and animated all on-screen graphics, colored, edited, and delivered the final spots to Amazon.

Dutch Masters | Craft Syndicate

Social Campaign docu-series following the winners of a creative mentorship contest. Low budget, one-man band production. Also responsible for editing, color, sound mixing and final delivery.

Work as a Motion Artist

This is a large mix of work that utilizes my broad skill set, including motion design, animation, illustration, and editing.

It's here - might as well embrace it. Here are a few experiments in AI. It's early days, and every month is a new, radical push forward. But here are three samples of my experiments.

A little about myself:

Son of Mexican-German, immigrants


My parents took this photo moments before they arrived in New York to start their new life in the States. Yeah, dope. I know. 

Ex-Rock & Roller


Before directing commercials, I was famous in Canada. I love Canada.

Inspiring the future


I love sharing the joy of filmmaking with my daughters. Spielberg would be so proud [of me].

Latte Arteest


I am perfecting my work as an impressionistic latte artist. This piece is entitled, "Nice try, daddy, but that's not a heart."
