I'm chef and owner of the restaurant Shungo Solitario, located in La Tola, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Quito, with an excellent view of Old Town. As a chef I have 9 years of experience, I've worked in some of the best restaurants in Ecuador, Perú, Brasil and Belgium. In 2013 I worked in Astrid & Gaston in Lima, Peru, number 14 in the world and was named number 1 in Latin America by that year. In 2014 I got 4th place in the Ecuadorian Young Value contest. 2018 I was named culinary ambassador of Ecuador in Belgium, in a culinary and cultural exchange. This allowed me to have an experience in Hertog Jan, a three michelin starred restaurant, that was located in Zedelgem. This year I represented Ecuador in the worldwide culinary contest: San Pellegrino Young Chef, where I classified to the Latin America Regional Final in Peru.
