Biography

I’m a Mexican-Jew, born in Mexico City and raised in Texas. I was an Art Director at Disney Interactive, where I co-wrote, and art directed the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY mobile game, then segued into writing and illustrating my own graphic novels like PANTALONES, TX, FUN FUN FUN WORLD, HERO HOTEL, ROCKET SALVAGE and SCI-FU. Sci-Fu is currently being developed by DreamWorks Feature Animation. I was the showrunner for a narrative podcast for the Pinna Network based on my graphic novel HERO HOTEL. I’m also currently writing two films for DreamWorks Feature animation. My middle-grade graphic memoir CHUNKY (for Harper-Collins/ For Katherine Tegen's imprint) was featured in the New York Times Book Review. I have written and illustrated two middle-grade graphic novels for DC Comics; one is a SHAZAM story, and the other is set in the Batman universe called BARKHAM ASYLUM (May 2024).
