Guatemala City, GT



I'm a proud Guatemalan, captivated by its nature, color, diversity and people. I believe that the culture and the place are critical when approaching to a design project. I aim to provide solutions that are effective and visually attractive, always supported by a strong design process.

I graduated as an architect at Universidad Francisco Marroquín, Guatemala City in 2011. Since 2010 I've being engrossed in architectural design. I'm interested mainly in the technological,sustainable, and urban fields. I've always had a special interest for japanese, nordic and dutch design, due to its ideas and 'extreme' logic solutions.

I live in Guatemala City. My passion beside architecture is traveling, listening and discovering new music, and playing racquet sports. Generally, I enjoy reading design books,magazines, and articles. Currently I'm interested in continuing the design practice. I am open to embrace new and different interdisciplinary design projects.
