Let’s start at the beginning.
I am a Colombian, I was born in Sweden and I was raised in Mexico. I am currently living in Sweden but I have lived in South Africa a few months & in the US for the last previous years. So, my first illustration is the vague memory I have of being in Sweden as a toddler.

In Malmö, I am pursuing a Masters in Interaction Design. It was hard leaving my life in the US but the design culture is amazing! I still go around in a bike and met incredible classmates.
A designer in search of
I decided to take an adventure for one summer and do an internship in South Africa. Cape Town was an amazing city that had all the creativity you could ask for, amazing nature experiences and new cultures to explore.
