I was born in Colombia and moved to Texas with my family when I was 11 years old. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to experience both cultures and be part of both. A few years ago I decided to leave my job in the financial industry to become a designer; it was the best decision of my life. Design has changed the way I look at the world and how I approach many aspects of my life, and I'm thankful for that. I hope to do work that has impact and changes people's live in a positive way. I love to experience other cultures through traveling and everything it encompasses. To me music is like food: everyone should enjoy a good variety of it. I’m into collecting “cool mementos" like napkins, stickers, and random things. I also enjoy hiking with my fiancé, traveling, or playing video games. Contact me about work or volunteer opportunities, if you would like to hear more about the best spots around a house to hide from a dog, or if you just want to chat about design.
