I am an Industrial Designer based in the Silicon Valley. I love traveling. I have lived in 5 countries for professional and academic reasons (Mexico, Sweden, Italy, Germany and USA), I am a truly "global citizen" with a great appreciation of other cultures. I am also passionate about languages (I'm fluent in English, Spanish and Italian, and I have an understanding of French, Portuguese and Swedish).
I'm happily married to a historian and we have a 3-year-old baby girl. My wife lived also in other countries (Spain, Kenya), so we love visiting other places, meeting other people and learning about cultures, history, design, food, sports, art.
I'm also a passionate runner, love mid-distance running (5K, 10K, 15K and 21K). I have participated in several competitions including The 24 hours of Adrenaline mountain-bike race in Laguna Seca, California in 2006; and The Relay (a 320Km-long relay race from Calistoga to Santa Cruz, California) in 2008.
For work, I'm a Senior Industrial Designer at (website hidden), prior to which I owned an award-winning design firm based in Mexico City. I've worked on consumer electronics, furniture, interiors, medical equipment, sports products, and toys, among other subjects.
