Chicago Headquarters

I am a designer who is interested in exploring, understanding, and improving how we experience our day-to-day lives. My background in engineering and music has allowed me to gain great appreciation for different approaches to problem solving across fields. I have a Master’s degree in Design from IIT’s Institute of Design and an MBA from IIT’s Stuart School of Business. I am passionate about music, spending much of my personal time writing and recording ideas, building music related equipment, or just thinking about musical ideas.


Master in Design – Institute of Design, IIT; MBA – Stuart School of Business, IIT; BS Mechanical and Electrical Engineering – Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico City
