Jaime Rodriguez is a co-founder of My1story and the creative lead for the property. As an illustrator and graphics designer, Jaime dreamt of starting this project since his early years while working at The Walt Disney Company as a character artist.
His 20 years of experience in children’s entertainment and his countless work for industry giants such as Disney, Nickelodeon, Fox, Warner Brothers, amongst others, were instrumental in providing a solid background for the development of My1story. As a father of two, My1story was born out of Jaime’s nostalgic appreciation for classic children’s stories and an observation that these had faded into obscurity in modern times. This, in turn, sparked an idea to revive these globally renowned characters by giving them a fun, colorful makeover that would appeal to children today. In collaboration with business partner Ricardo Venegas, they tweaked the stories in a light-hearted way, leaving the violent and dark aspects of the original tales in the past thus ensuring that storytelling remains a pleasant, fun learning experience for children of all ages.
