My profile

My main field of experience is Design. I’ve worked for 6 years in companies from different sectors in Latin America, Italy, Germany and France. My goal is to continue gainning experience working on projects in different fields while developing my entrepeneurial project Hexagro Urban Farming, which is now a startup based in Milan.

I have a Bachelor Degree in Product Design from Universidad Veritas, Costa Rica in which I had a successful trajectory achieving the first honorable mention for a graduate project in the school (Hexagro project) and subsequently received a scholarship to study a Master of Science in Design and Engineering at Politecnico di Milano. I was also accepted to be part of the Alta Scoula Politecnica, a parallel extracurricular course of 2 years to develop multidisciplinary projects. I attended lessons on different topics, from project management, to design methods and sustainability. My group’s project was related to Additive Manufacturing of Metals, field in which I’m working nowadays at Poly-Shape Italia (Motorsport Automotive, Formula 1 sector).

I’m passionate for design, sustainability and innovation, that’s why I like to work hard and learn any kind of new things. I consider myself a team player and I’m confident that design is the best tool to unify creativity with technical knowledge, which drive to innovative solutions.
