Designer (Furniture Design)

Member since March 30, 2010

Industrial Designer and Illustrator, born in Guatemala, lived in Norway and now living temporarily in New York City. In July 2010 I will star working as a volunteer designer in Mombasa Kenya.

I am one of the founding members of El Chiltepe, an on-line magazine that showcases new and innovate work by a variety of international artists and aimed for Latin Americans. I am also part of BC Colectivo where I collaborate with Guatemalan photographer Chinitas Yon and experiment with recycled materials combining our talents to create unique pieces of art.

FREDSKORPSET - I worked as an exchange designer in Norway from 2004 to 2005.

CUSO - Will start working as a volunteer designer helping a furniture factory in Kenya, that works with people with disabilities. I will be designing and helping them improve quality, sales and an other bunch of stuff.

GUYFROG - I helped them design a t-shirt graphic that they could sell for fund raising.

Design comes from within, you can't design if you don't feel it.
