Through my studies and experience I have grown as an architect, discovering the importance of the context analysis and that the idea is the essential axis of a project, trying to include these concepts as the basis of my work. I have learned that an architect is a team and to be part of it, to manage the autonomy but also the communication, to work under pressure and changing priorities. I stand out for my capability of analysis and spatial sensitivity, with special attention to materials and details, for manage to capture the essence and needs of each place and translate it into projects, with implication, self-criticism and a smile.
