Mentor of the Day: Mauricio Abril
Here at Motivarti, we know many of our applicants are trying to make the big leap from their current career into a creative career. It can be an intimidating feat, but luckily Mentor Mauricio Abril completely understands that transition! He labels himself as a “recovering scientist” and graduated from UCLA with a degree in Molecular Biology. When he realized it wasn’t the career path he wanted, he rekindled his childhood passion for art – and we’re so happy he did!
One of Mauricio’s Fall 2015 Mentees Polly Tzelepis was thrilled with her experience as a Mentee! She told us about her time in the mentorship, “What I enjoyed the most is having a great mentor that could sit down with me and look over my work with a critical eye and target the learning to my needs. I also enjoyed getting insight to how the industry works and what else I need to do in order to obtain a job.” Check out her work below!
Mauricio’s Fall 2015 Mentee Celine Qian You also had a great time during her mentorship, “He is very efficient and able to critique a lot of things during a short time.” Check out Celine’s work below!
With his wealth of experience at studios such as Walt Disney Imagineering, Disney Interactive Studios, Ubisoft, and Hasbro – he is an excellent Mentor to learn from! If you’re interested in expanding your skills with your environment designs, we think Mauricio might be a perfect potential Mentor for you!
