I grew up in Peru where I attended a German school and where I got an interest in foreign cultures and languages. I later finished high school in the US, lived in Chile for a year and got scholarships to attend college in Pennsylvania and Texas. I got another scholarship to study a Master's at the London School of Economics. I moved to Germany and worked at Intel Corporation in Munich, then started an internet business in Barcelona, a family company in Peru and a conservation project in the Amazon. I am learning about open innovation and want to start a space to collaborate on open design projects in Barcelona and hopefully San Francisco.
I have hosted countless travelers thru a free website, that the airbnb autocorrect system does not let me mention, :) and Warmshowers (couchsufing for cycling travellers!) both in Barcelona and Peru.
I love photography, cycling, cooking, camping, hiking, mountains, greek islands, the rainforest, social entrepreneurship, the collaborative economy, internet projects, technology.
