I am a mechatronics engineer with a master of digital media and a passion for human computer interaction. The variety of my technical skills and my experience working in multidisciplinary teams make of me a bridge between the different team members and their areas of expertise thus uniting design, artistic and engineering mindsets to create a unified product.
Moreover, I come from a multicultural background, Mexico, France, and Spain, countries of which I fluently speak the language, and know and understand the mindset. As I have traveled around these countries (and more) and worked with people with different backgrounds, I have improved my organizational skills. I am adaptive and am ok with making decisions for the project in hand.
With a broad engineering skill set I am a problem solver with an objective mind, as I understand the different stakes of a project.
