Born in San Diego, CA and lived in Tijuana, Mexico, I would cross the border daily, always being exposed to two parallel, yet distinct worlds divided by a frontier.

My convictions about architecture have been in continuous change, more so now during my undergraduate studies. What remains constant is my interest in the potential of space design to leave a memorable impression on people who occupy and dwell in it, particularly in the hotel industry. I want to erase the border between architecture and hospitality and let the visitors remember a single night stay that will remain in their minds for years.

With enough working experience in a hotel banquets department, participation in a hospitality design competition, and event/design planning for a 150-guest count dinner, I am enthusiastically seeking different ways to understand the complex structure of the hotel industry.
