I studied multidisciplinary design at Universidad del Azuay in Cuenca, Ecuador. The curriculum of my undergraduate education consisted of a strong theory and practical approach to design. I have had the opportunity to learn a broad range of construction and prototyping methods. During my education, I acquired skills such as woodworking, metalworking, jewelry, ceramics, illustration, and more. After graduating as a multidisciplinary designer I obtained a J. W. Fulbright scholarship to study industrial design at RIT. I have been interested in the ways in which technology and theory of design can help develop solutions to society's problems. My graduate thesis consisted of the design of a board game based on traditional knowledge of south American Andean communities. I came back to Ecuador, after getting my MFA degree, and got a position as a teacher at Universidad San Francisco de Quito in the Communications Design department. Currently, I work as a part time teacher, and develop research and independent design projects for various clients. I have been an educator and have been always active in practical and theoretical design research my whole career.
