i am

Passionate about Design, Creativity, Strategy, Innovation, and the impact that those topics have on people´s life, and the market in general. I´ve been working in the Industry of Design for about 15+ years inside companies like MUMA, Curve Id (New York), and Corona.

Over the past 6 years, I´ve been leading the transformation of the Corona´s portfolio strategy and Design capabilities. I´ve consolidated a high performance, multidisciplinary team of creatives who have brought to reality a significant number of products, all of them developed through a rigorous design process based on people´s needs, and the emotional connections between users and objects.

I´ve spent 5 years living in New York city and working with some of the most incredible brands, for whom I´ve helped to bring their products to life. Some of them are brands like OXO, Colgate, Perkin Elmer, John Deere, among others.

The work that I´ve led has been granted 11 International recognitions from the most prestigious International Awards such as ¨Red Dot design award¨, ¨IF design award¨, ¨A´Design award¨, and ¨Good Design award¨.
