Title: Civil Engineer.

City you live in: Tulúm, Quintana Roo, MX.

A typical day in my life includes: project designing, monitoring and construction logistics.

I was born in Mérida, Yucatán.

My first job was: Building car dealerships.

My favorite thing about traveling is local culture.

I’m currently listening to Jamiroquai.

I separate myself from others in this field by… using optimal design,  building logistics and applying knowledge to materialize parametric structures with materials like bamboo, wood and concrete, flawless finishes and exquisite taste for esthetics in the final product.

Always… looking for new materials and design fitting nature.

Biggest dream…to work globally, develop research in ecological materials and applying to a new design line and building techniques.

In ten years I would like to be…  exposed world wide and working in projects that transcends respectfully in the interaction of human society and nature.

People would be surprised to know that…Transmitting knowledge is the path to transcendence.

I draw inspiration from: sacred geometry, material ecology, technologies and nature.
