About Me


pensar arquitectura, hacer arquitectura - think architecture, do architecture


Currently based in Basel, love drawing and architecture. Love books, cinema fan and bike rides under the sun. Getting lost in new towns, experience new landscapes, this stuff moves me.

Bad cook but amateur analog photographer >>>



¿Por qué tenemos una mente si no es para hacer lo que nos dé la gana?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

34 countries in 9 months, an amazingly intense world wide trip along with a bunch of buddys. The best memories and plenty of couches to go back to!

Teach, Learn, Share

Im all about teaching, being a first degree architecture teacher myself, sharing knowledge is one of the most atractive activities I can imagine. Among the skills ill be able to share within my discipline I specialize in design process (being practical, computer asisted drawing and free hand drawing) and architectural theory.
Besides that, I can play some lovely southamerican guitar songs ill love to share. Also some tips in analogic photography (regular 35mm film, holga, and polaroid).
