Statement I’m an accomplice willing to play the game and make rules to break them later. I’m fascinated by the tools with which to be able to create an imaginative, unpredictable and meticulous narrative, that's why design and music are chosen to temper that restlessness. I'm a shy pianist. I’m fortunate to be able to work with people and in places where I have been able to imagine and experiment, both to provide synergies with our environment and to promote design as a social transformer.

I want to learn, everyday. My current hobbies include learning German, learning more German and doing a Theater course, obviously in German.
