“I was born in México City, place where I finished my studies to become a Graphic Designer.

As a professional I would describe my self as a very determined and highly motivated person. I do take my job seriously and I am also able to see things in perspective. I am easy going and a good working companion. I am an optimist rather than a pessimist. I’m very good at finding solutions to problems. Above all, I would say I’m a positive and enthusiastic person – and I enjoy every new challenge.
My favourite hobbies are travelling, swimming & cooking”
