I consider myself as a proactive person who is constantly looking for new challenges and always enthusiast about learning. I have worked with interdisciplinary teams for the development of products, from the user needs to prototype fabrication. I have cooperated with several artists and companies from Colombia by carrying out graphic creative content: music album cover along with the posters, flyers, portfolio and concert video background design. I led and coordinated for 3 years the creative office from an engineering institute that provided software and hardware solutions to the oil & gas sector. 

During my studies in Italy I have developed concepts for a desktop 3D printer, pasta maker and vacuum cleaner. Along with the industrial approach for product development I have executed small-scale concepts with Arduino and similar boards. I`m a bicycle fanatic, I challenged myself to know them in-depth and ended up repairing and giving them a second chance in the fascinating world of human powered vehicles.
