I am...

Passionate about Design, Creativity, Strategy, Innovation, and the impact those topics have on people´s life and the industry 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. During my time in New York, I´ve helped bringing products to life for big brands like  OXO, Colgate, Perkin Elmer, John Deere, among others.

Over the past 5 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 great number of products, all of them designed through a rigorous design process based on people´s needs, and the emotional connections between users and objects.

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 designaward¨, ¨A´Design award¨ and ¨Good Design award¨.
