Although born in Miami, FL in 1996, I grew up in Quito, Ecuador where I developed an interest in immersing myself in creative practices. Throughout most of my youth I had been deeply involved in the world of music, which fueled my interest in pursuing a career in the parallel world of art and design. After attending military boarding school for the last two years of high school I developed an interest in furniture design. My appreciation for nature has given me a more intimate relationship with materials and everything that entails. The possibilities of engaging with the natural world through design become a reality through craft and exploration. I am now pursuing a Furniture Design degree at the Rhode Island School of Design where I am intended to graduate on June 2018.
