About Me

As a child of technology and a quick learner, i always followed new trends during my career.

During my experiences, I was able to combine my scientific and pedagogical skills with those necessary in the business world.

Collaborating with people from various countries and different cultures has allowed me to build and leverage great project teams achieving amazing products.

Different platforms, languages, environment help me to continuously improve processes and leadership.

Build, innovate, be caring and push the limits are elements that animate me and that I like to share in each of the companies with which I share a privileged moment of my life.

"The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.", Theodore Roosevelt.
