During his early career years in Córdoba City (where he was born), Esteban was involved in the making of more than one hundred commercials, many of them winners of various prizes in the region, Like Lapiz de Plata, Lapiz de Platino, FIAP, etc.

After some years, he relocated to Buenos Aires, pursuing a career more focused on branding and animation.

After 3 great years at Steinbranding, he took a new job with as a Senior Animation Director at Studio Freak, a small but highly talended group of people focused on Ids, commercials and more elaborated VFX work.
