His creative forces have been applied to the physical worlds of Production Design, Art Direction, and Conceptual Development. Javier has contributed to Emmy winning TV shows, Oscar-nominated films, and Tony Award-winning productions such as the hit Broadway show Hamilton, Disney’s Beauty and Beast, HBO’s Bored to Death, Girls, Boardwalk Empire, and so many more.
