I am a graduated Spanish Architect in 2010 interested in all sustainable design buildings and construction. I am specialized in Wood Construction, based on my time expended in Finland and later with my experience on site in Panama.  I like to learn the different ways of building techniques to acquire knowledge to be applied in future projects. 

I have worked with people from around the world, sharing different cultures and backgrounds is something that is enriching for life experience.

Currently I am enrolled in a Masters in Construction Management at the Swanson School of Engineering, part of the University of Pittsburgh.
