I co-founded 1933 Spirits in 2009 and developed a portfolio of internationally awarded tequilas which have been on the market since 2011. Since 2017, I have found success leveraging traditional studio art skills in Virtual Reality to rapidly create immersive 3D environments, characters and assets. I would consider myself a jack of all trades and a master at *some*.
While our core product has been on the market since 2011, I still manage wholesale inquiries, sponsorships, video production, package design and branding assets.
Accomplishments include over a dozen international awards including multiple Double Gold Medals.
When our IP was challenged by a global competitor, I conducted legal research and wrote a defense which nullified their attempt to enforce a cease and desist request.
We have continued to raise over $20,000 a year for non-profits via sponsorship agreements I negotiate and manage.
Turned a few napkins into a few photoshop renderings and eventually delivered the packaging for what today is still one of the only tequilas in the world from the state of Michoacan.
Like all artists, I take on projects whenever they come my way. I'm currently really into VR based work flows for concept design and animation.
