A footwear designer/explorer in Europe and North America, I'm an independent, analogical and abstract thinker, combining a sensibility for footwear performance technology with fashion.
Working to a holistic Design philosophy that also includes other fundamental design deliverables as positive social engineering and environmental compatibility, because creativity and problem solving have no limits!
My International design experience includes exclusive brands such as: Ferrari and Ducati footwear through Fila in Italy. North American brands include Nautica, Pony and Nike where I was the lead designer for mens golf footwear. European brands include Puma, Bata, Stuburt and DUCA DEL COSMA.
With a Master of Design degree I am fluent in English, Italian, French, and speak Spanish and German.
Client work is balanced with Social Design projects, including work for charitable organizations such as Soul of Africa and personal projects such as Huarache Blog which is dedicated to promoting the traditional Mexican Craft of Huarache Footwear.
I mostly work out of Central Mexico, Italy and China.
