About 

I am a graduate interior design student at Istituto Marangoni in Milan, Italy. Since I graduate I have had the pleasure of working for RH (Restoration Hardware) as a Design Consultant. I was able to learn a lot through the company, I was able to get hand-on learning of materials and fabrics, retail experience, and worked along RH Design Team and with interior designers that work along with our trade sector of the company. 

I was born in El Salvador and I have been living across Latin American (Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Panama) for most of my life. Living in different countries has given me the ability to easily adapt to change. The changes in each country I lived in led me to learn about different cultures. In addition, it led me to learn how to be open to different ideas. Learning about different perspectives in life led me to develop my passion for art and design. Previously, I have interned in two mayor architectural firm in El Salvador and Panama. This helped me get a deeper scope of how an architectural firm works. In addition, it also taught me how to cooperate with a team in an assigned project. 

Thought my years following my passion in interior design, I have mastered the use of AutoCAD, InDesign, Photoshop, 3D Max and Vray.
