When you are inspired…dormant forces, faculties, and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be. —Patanjali

My foray into design has been primarily in the publishing industry, designing, editing and curating art books, exhibition catalogues, cultural magazines, coffee table books and literature collections. In 1998 I founded Concepto Gráfico, diseño y edición, a design studio under which I have done most of my work.

I have been honored for my work with more than fifty awards and recognitions.

Since 2013 I have been living and working in London.

 

Education

I studied Graphic Advertising at the Scuola Lorenzo D'Medici in Florence, Italy; I have a bachelor degree in Graphic Design at the Universidad Iberoamericana, in Mexico City and a Diploma on photography by the Centro Cultural Televisa, also in Mexico City.

Since 2013 I had studied courses on cultural and curatorial management in London.
