Born and raised in Lima, Peru. I started traveling since I was eight and stepping out of my bubble, or what I call Lima, opened my eyes and sparked what my passion would be. Shortly after, I decided that when I grew up I wanted to make a change in people's behavior and they way they experience the mundane day to day in context with their environments. Built environments. Make them see buildings as something else than just a set of walls and a roof. I wanted to create architecture.
