I come from a family of artists. My mother is a painter, and my father an industrial designer. I grew up looking at the world around me as a collection of creations. I have experienced my life analyzing how people move and interact. How different colors or sizes of a painting can completely change the feel of it, and how incredibly a simple piece of furniture can embrace the human body. I grew up knowing the importance of creation - of bringing into reality new ideas and pushing the boundaries of whats considered new and contemporary. This has produced in me an urge to create innovative designs with the collaboration of inventive people. My personal objective is to be able to expand my skills in order to be able to maximize my contribution to the advancement of design and architecture.
