Monterrey, MX




I was born in Houston Texas with an American mother and a Mexican father. We moved to Monterrey Mexico where I have lived for most of my life.

This experience has allowed me to view different cultures and perspectives to problem solving.

Design is my life and to me many of life’s problems can be solved through the careful and harmonious transformation of our environments: from spaces and instruments, to graphics and textures that adorn everything in between.

Mexican Scout Association.
I’m an active member, currently serving as Cub Scout Leader for a Group in which I have participated for 22 years. My current responsibilities include planning and executing activities with children between 6 and 10 years old. Previ-ously I served for 7 years as Chief Scout Leader in charge of adult volunteers and parents for the whole Scout Group. Scouting has provided me with the opportunity to meet Scouts from all over the world, as well as develop teamwork skills.



My goal as an architect is to bring comfort and harmony to the client, always searching for the best way to achieve this and still create an original and distinct design. I see each project through the eyes of the people that will inhabit it. I have worked with many different architects and for a wide range of clients, including some very demanding ones. My experience in solving problems and working with others is what helps my design and execution bring excellent results.

Archondesign, San Pedro México, MX, Architectural Designer

My current employer, we design casinos and restaurants all over Mexico. My job is to design and supervise these projects, mostly in the Monterrey area. We also design furniture, homes, and websites. We also have a graphic design department. The work is good, but I wish to find better opportunities for growth as an architect.
