Stuff About Me:


I’m a designer that works with people, communities, and organisations in a collaborative manner. My focus is to use design as a tool to unlock innovation and help solve pressing social problems. I have been working on how design can help organisations create value for people and in the use and application of design based tools and creative arts methodologies to engage people and co-design succesful solutions. I believe in the capacity of people to work in teams with the organisations and institutions in order to provide powerful ideas within their own communities.

I believe that design should be coherent, cohesive, and respectful with people, their context, culture, and within the environment in which it develops.

In September 2012 I started volunteering with Abriendo Mentes as the womens empowerment director in a rural disadvantaged community named Potrero, in Costa Rica.

This program aims to empower the local women of Potrero to tackle difficult issues in their lives by providing the necessary tools and skills to address them. Through these months (Sept-Dec) the program has been very succesful and we have had the participation and involvement of over 15 women in the community.  I feel the need to keep volunteering with these women and this organization at least for 4 months more and that is the reason why I am starting a fundraising that will allow me to keep developing our educational and entrepreneurship projects with them.
