Hi, my name is Francisco Suarez, you can call me Frank. I was born in La Habana Cuba and grew up in Alajuela Costa Rica and Miami Florida. I have also lived in Chicago Illinois, Caracas Venezuela, and Bogota Colombia. In Alajuela is where my love for cinema and music began. I had the old Cine Alajuela right in the corner of our block. It was an old movie theater infested with bats, but my sister and I religiously went every Saturday to the matinee shows. It was there that I would fall in love with all the Disney classics like Fantasia, Dumbo, Lady and the Tramp and my favorite as a kid, The Fox and the Hound. On the other corner of my block was my school Miguel Obregon Lozano, where I was a member of the marching band and had an amazing music teacher.
I studied Music Education at Miami Dade College, but it wasn’t until 2013 that I graduated from Miami International University of Art and Design with a Bachelors in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics.
One of the most amazing things about the Motion Graphics industry is the community. I have been blessed to have met some amazing people along the way that have become not only work partners but also friends. In 2016 I took the plunge into the freelance world which has been an exhilarating/scary/amazing experience.
I currently live in St Augustine Florida with my amazing wife Natalia, our two children Mateo and Manuela, and our rescued dog Boo. Apart from Motion Design, I’m active in my church where I do design and video work. When I’m not working or hanging out with my family you will find me either playing soccer or watching it. I love collaborating with small or big teams so please drop me a line. :)
