I grew up in Guadalajara, Mexico. I am currently a Fulbright Grantee and a MPS Candidate at the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at New York University’s Tisch School of The Arts (I expect to graduate in May 2018), where I am exploring how to make complex information easy and how to design interfaces to foster community involvement.

I am a storyteller at heart. I believe that there is no better way to convey an idea than through a story that resonates with the people you want to reach. I’m also a voracious post-it consumer, an over-thinker and a stickler for grammar in my native Spanish.

When I am not burning circuits, trying to learn how to speak to computers, pulling my hair whilst trying to debug something or commuting, I love having stimulating conversations with friends over a glass of wine or a bitter beer, browsing through stupid sites with fluffy creatures, and staying cozy in my Brooklyn apartment with a cup of hot cocoa to be alone with my thoughts.
