About 

Hello!

I am a young designer and future architect who was raised and grew up in Mexico City and received her Bachelors Degree in Architectural Studies in Scottsdale, Arizona. I am soon to graduate with a Masters Degree in Architecture from Taliesin, The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture where I also received my BAS from in 2011. I am passionate about art, culture, history, design, color, horses, and architecture, of course! Helping and inspiring people through the environment they inhabit and interact with, is the reason why I love what I do and hope to keep doing it for the rest of my life.
