I´m an architect living and working between New York City and Mexico city, graduated with honors and with experience on a wide range of disciplines. During my career I´ve worked in urban, architectural and editorial design in an international environment with projects from varied typologies.

I also have great experience in project management and coordination at corporate levels, managing internal and external clients, budgets and planning. Dealing with people of different backgrounds, nationalities and professions is a personal skill I have developed.

My background in design plus my experience in corporate project management gives me the ability to work on multiple and varied projects from beginning to end, being totally in control of every aspect and phase.

Im currently available to work in studios, corporate offices or freelancing.
