The practice of architecture fascinates me as it’s an ever-changing
challenge that demands an innovative approach for every new project. At
office I enjoy the opportunity to keep learning and growing as part of
the team. Contributing to a project highly motivates me, and I commit
hard in providing the best possible solution.

I speak Spanish and English due to my bilingual education. Both creative
and technical aspects have been very present in my career, from my
M.Arch curriculum to my work in the different offices I've worked at,
giving me a global understanding of the discipline.
