I am a committed, responsible, critical and observant person. I am always looking to increase my professional and personal growth.

I love the work I do, especially if it is in the fields I like the most such as, interior design, sustainability and management.

It was a small project in which I designed all the interior space of a restaurant in the center of Bogotá. I choose all the furniture and tiles of the space creating a cosy environment.

MAP Arquitectos, Bogotá, CO, Internship

I started designing a restaurant in Washington D.C including interiors and exteriors. Then I continued designing the interior spaces of a small apartment in Bogotá, in which I had to had to take into account the height of the client because her age problems restricted her to bend and to climb. At last I worked in a car design for the storage of materials.

Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogotá, CO, BArch, Architecture

I saw different projects including collective housing, urban centers and I went to Madrid to do an exchange.

I think architecture must consider all fields in which human beings develop. Going from sociology to medicine passing through psychology and other branches related to humans.

It is very important to consider this because the main purpose of architecture, as I see it, is to improve quality of life, thinking at the same time, in function, form and now a days sustainability.
