Design and its different forms is my passion, from a garment to typography, from pieces of furniture to a pattern. And I believe design should be a collaborative work to able to create exciting and unique spaces.  I am so excited to contribute and be part of this world that will bring new moments and memories to people.

I fell in love with color and texture while watching my mother wearing typical Mexican dresses full of color.  When I moved to Puebla to study a BA in Architecture, I confirmed  the passion a felt for color and texture. It fascinates me how design changes from culture to culture; it is that change that inspires me to pursue a deeper understanding of the design process.

Also I am always been inspired by cities and their urban landscape. The roughness of the streets, the shadows cast by skyscrapers, the texture that every building creates, the little pieces of nature that you can find scattered around and the patterns that people create as the inhabit the space, all those are my inspiration too.
