about me

I was born in Bogotá, Colombia, and I studied graphic Design. I write, illustrate and publish children books.

Since I remember, I like books and images, and that’s the reason why I decided to start doing what I like at my own independent publishing house called GatoMalo (BadCat), in 2005.

I have worked alone in most of my projects, but I really love to work with people, and together with my friend and colleague Luis Fernando García, we made three books, for GatoMalo and for an Indian publishing house called Katha. You can check these works out by clicking here (or browsing to my "books" section).

I currently work as a professor at Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano, and as freelance illustrator.

I work in GatoMalo as Editor, Illustrator, Writer, Graphic Designer and as an accountant assistant, janitor, or even as a delivery boy.
