This was not his first experience. A couple of years before, he also participated in a boarding school with Disney Research. To get there, he filled out a form on the Internet, uploaded his work portfolio and waited for the results. An email informed him that he was finally chosen and that is how an adventure that lasted for 3 months began.

From that first return to the country, Rivera has combined his studies with his work at the Herald Entertainment studio, where the first 3D full-length film made in Costa Rica is developed.

I also have a passionate interest in different expressions of music, especially many American styles and their combinations (Folk-Country, Jazz, Pop, Rhythm and Blues, Rock, Soul, and so on), dance, stage and screen, and some other forms of artistic expression.
