A DESIGNER, ARTIST AND TECHNOLOGIST
Born and raised in Peru, currently living in Brooklyn, NY
Graduated with a MFA in Design and Technology from Parsons School of Design in 2017 and started working as a Sr. Product Designer at Verizon’s R&D lab, now called the 5G Labs.
Currently working as a Sr. Experience Designer III in the CX Design team at Verizon where I've grown to learn how to wear a variety of hats including business strategist, researcher, visual designer, technologist, prototyper and project manager. Also, working as part-time faculty at Parsons School of Design in the MFA Design & Technology program teaching Emigrant Food Futures.
At Parsons I'm always researching about agriculture and it's development based on socio-political issues, and how design and technology could help us think about solutions to those problems in the future. As an artist, all projects are related to immigration, gastronomy, agriculture, women’s rights and other topics related to social injustice. Most recently working on concepts that question how society confronts critical problems related to climate change and immigration; and how they all intersect with education, agriculture and the future of food.
Outside of work, art and teaching; I'm a home cook, all around traveler, a retired semi-pro rugby player, a nature lover and overall learning enthusiast.
