Mexico City, 1987.


Product designer based in Mexico City. He works in the realms of design research and creative direction.


His work addresses contemporary issues through the scope of design-related disciplines as interpretation bridges between culture and technology. Up to now, he has explored such schemes with the study of low-tech systems and the traditional crafts sector, with a particular yet challenging focus on transcultural collaborative practices.
