While working for a social media company I was required to create animated Latino characters, but I wanted to create one that wouldn't speak just to the Latino community but everybody. That’s when Guacardo came to me; an avocado that doesn't speak but has a lot of personality, who enjoys dancing and eating. I started animating Guacardo in movies such as Titanic and White Chicks, which became viral instantly. Since then people have been asking me to animate Guacardo in their favorite movies or music videos. I think in some way everybody relates to him.

Guacardo has more than 40,000 loyal followers on Instagram and his own line of merchandise. Learn more at .
