Hi, I was born in Mexico City 33 years ago, since I was a child the sport was something interesting to me so, my parents took me to play various sports, finally at 6 years old I found the Football, immediately I loved it. I was running back for 17 years, now a big part of my life is based in this wonderful play and its values like, friendship, discipline, and give my best every time to achieve my goals in life.
In one moment I found Architecture & Design and I realized that this matter will be what I would like to do in my life because, I was in love in that time and now I am still thinking and feeling that. In the 5th year of Architecture I decided to do a break in the National University to enroll one University in France to do my Thesis, it was not a exchange or a scholarship, everything was like a new registration in a new school in a new country with other language.
Swiss was the final destination for a year, working in my Architectural Thesis, it was a challenge, also new and very interesting, thanks to it, I was learning and visiting similar projects in Spain, England, Turkey, Mexico, Belgium country where I was living in the second year of Architecture, and of course France. Finally I exposed my work in France first and then in Mexico to achieve both Bachelors.
United Nations was my home for six months, doing a Social Work and working over how to recover the railroad tracks in Mexico creating Architectural points of interest in every old station. It was very interesting, and I learned how to work inside a big international organization in all the aspects. It was a great job.
Like an Architect I worked three years in Mexico City designing a luxury residential building, this included Architectural, Industrial, Lighting and Interior Design and was my first full project where I could develop all learned in University in France, Mexico and Swiss. It was the real life with real materials with a fixed budget and thanks to it I gained maturity for work.
France was my next destination to live and work, and I must say that I was working most time like freelance, also on a few projects in Mexico from France for a period of time, thanks to technology and internet it was possible, a successful period and a time to improve my skills and to be very efficient over time.
Now I am in L.A, I had an opportunity to came here and work in a construction office interpreting Architectural plans and calculating numbers. But my goal is to be inside one Architectural or Interior Design office doing what I was learning and working for many years. My passion... ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN which includes also INTERIOR DESIGN.
