Over the past two years I have been employed by two different companies, 'Elástico Urbano' where I worked as an Architect and in 'Spaciodesign' as Architect and Interior Designer, both in Spain, working in residential, commercial and mixed-uses projects. In my previous role, I successfully supported a workshop as a leader of over 400 people, collaborating with Kengo Kuma, Carlo Magnani and Sou Fujimoto.

I have always had a natural ability to work well with people, help customers, and mesh with office staff. I understand that good interpersonal skills allow for a more comfortable and cohesive office environment.

I have studied in many different countries so I guess I have an international and open-minded way of thinking. Spanish is my native language, I have a fluent English, I understand Portuguese and I have just started studying mandarin Chinese.

I have ability to use Auto CAD, Sketchup, Adobe Photoshop, Rhinoceros3D, Grasshopper app and other graphics programs.

I am a dynamic and ambitious architect who possesses the design and development flair needed to plan, coordinate and be involved in all phases of an architectural project.
