Professional Experience
Skills Overview

Management, Production and Game Design

On a general note I want to convey that I've been in the trenches of game development and production many, times. Out of real-world experience I know how to design with measure and structure the development process correctly from the start. I’m best at visualizing a game along with the gamer experience from conception and I’m very capable of seeing “the vision” through every step of the process. I’m very logical and organized in the thinking process, good at identifying and eliminating variables and very fluid at finding creative solutions to impossible problems. I know how to create -or contribute to create- a casual, stress-free and highly creative atmosphere while keeping the team motivated and productive. I'm very good at turning company wishes into reality and in maximizing results on time and within a budget.

Character Development and Set Design

I understand esthetic value, story telling and character development. I have been designing characters, worlds and machines for comics, games, TV shows and movies almost my entire career. Designing characters and worlds is one of my favorite things and one of the skills that I’m most prolific and creative about. Aside from designing hundreds of character for comics and of curiosity is that I was in the design team’s for the ThunderCats, SilverHawks and TigerSharks with Rankin Bass in NYC. Also of notice is the redesigning of every character in the Batman universe with my best selling Graphic Novel Batman Digital Justice.

Accomplished, Prolific and Published Author

Along with the books my works have been serialized and published in hundreds of magazines all over the world (as mentioned in the summary). Hundreds of articles have been published along with awards and recognitions. My work is also included in many compilations and documentaries and some of it has even been made into permanent collection in museums like the Smithsonian in Washington and the Museum of Modern Art in Paris.

Software and Development Tools

I'm very familiar also with all the game development components and pipeline, specially in 3D since I have been developing 3-D games long before any of the current methods became standard. Whatever the game culture or lingo I’m fundamentally familiar with game development pipeline and fluid enough with most of the basic tools to do it myself. Anything from 3D modeling and texture mapping, to particle effects and animated sprites. From game map design and game interface to scripting and everything else in between. Whatever the position on a team, I can help glue things together and fill any gaps that may emerge during production. I’m also a well accomplished and published artist, designer and illustrator.
