About

Steamroller exists to breathe life into stories, characters, and experiences in visual, physical, and virtual spaces. Each project that comes our way, be it a game, a film, or a theme park ride, exists in its own universe. It is our job to bring this multiverse to life. Our animators build believable characters and whole worlds in a multitude of universes, while our developers manipulate the rules of perception to transport you to a new definition of reality. We relish the opportunity to bring our clients’ universes to life while also developing our own stories.

Interests/About Me Animation is my life! I enjoy drawing, well mostly doodling but always trying to improve. Photography. I was really into Street Photography for a while and dabbled a bit. Took hundreds of pictures, I maybe have 2-4 worth while ones. Truly love Vivian Maier’s photography! I dig Design, almost studied Industrial Design. Films! Some favorites would have to be Princess Kaguya, Blade Runner 2049, Empire of The Sun. I enjoy watching Cartoons/TV Shows. I do watch some Anime, Naruto is a favorite with it’s epic story. I enjoy cooking. I love and appreciate the design/engineering fusion of Cars. Occasional Salsa Dancing with my wife. My lovely wife also studies and appreciates movement; and teaches Contemporary Dance at a Charter School. Together we sometimes attend Dance shows, some great and some weird. I love Basketball. I’m a geek for Gadgets and Technology. Spend most of my time working on my own projects and reworking stories that I enjoy collaborating with my brother Henry Sanchez, which is also an animator. We can’t wait to tell our stories from our perspectives, one day!
