Designer, artist and musician.
Based on the energy efficiency problems we face today I approach design from a sensitive perspective to the use of the most innovative production techniques and sustainable materials; I understand that the application of co-designing techniques and continuous research helps us to better understand the real necessities of a product or service and the form they shall take. As a side passion I smash the drums, beat the congas and spank the djembes, always looking for jamming opportunities and music projects.
