About Me

CURRENT MISSION

...to the unknown!!

ABOUT ME

A seeker, in a search that goes through every aspect of my life and that involves opening myself to new experiences, people and points of view. Always having a curious attitude that drives me to try new things - this meaning getting out of a comfort zone and allowing myself to make mistakes and good choices. And, in this way, experiencing a personal evolution.

I love art expression in every shape and form! (music, movies, architecture, literature, drawing). But I'm most of all a big fan of music, I've played the saxophone for some years and being around in a couple of bands in Buenos Aires. Also some drawing in my spare time as well.

As any architecture student i can spend hours wandering in a city looking at its buildings and how people live the city. I'm very keen in discovering secret and beautiful spots that cities hide and that are not at first sight.

Going to my personal history, i was born and raised in Buenos Aires and lived in the suburbs (Martinez) since then, but constantly going to the city either for work, study or leisure.

Living my whole childhood and adolescence in the suburbs in a conservative and dogmatic environment always left a taste that something was missing, which made me choose to study in the public university of Buenos Aires (UBA), in a really plural and diverse environment. Getting to know people with such a variety of backgrounds and even a lot of people from other countries, really opened my mind and it has been an inflection point in my life.
I've been studying architecture for five years now and working as well!

PHILOSOPHY

As i said before, i'm not a big fan of dogma or preconceived ideas.
At this moment, i believe that a real connection with others -in a deep and honest way- is the most meaningful thing we can do, and in this way growing and evolving as human beings
