Hi, I'm Cesar.

Since 2003 I've held positions ranging from Graphic Designer, Motion Graphics Designer, and Web Software Engineer. I enjoy learning and I always looked for ways to utilize my skillset to solve problems in unique ways.I'm bilingual in English and Spanish and hold bachelors and associates degrees in Multimedia Arts & Design with over two decades of experience in web development and and designing for web, print, motion graphics.I find that I gravitate towards projects that help people and could have a positive impact on their lives in one way or another (either directly or indirectly.)View my full resume at LinkedIn.Outside of work; I enjoy watching movies, playing video games and will occasionally take on a side-project to learn new technologies, or skills. This includes wood working, CNC, 3d printing, wrenching on cars; pretty much anything that keeps my mind and hands busy.
