Born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, one of Latin America’s leading industrial and innovative cities, I am an enthusiastic entrepreneur currently in the second year of a two-year Master of Science in Management, Technology, and Entrepreneurship (M.S. MTE) at École Polytechnic Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).
I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering with a minor in Entrepreneurship from the University of Southern California (USC). During my studies I also spent an exchange semester at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Upon returning I had the opportunity as founding President to kickstart USC’s chapter of the young Mexican Entrepreneur Association (AEM Jóvenes).
I have also spent two years working in Los Angeles in the construction industry, project managing two different high-rise projects. I also joined the Voces Latinas Toastmasters’ chapter where I obtained my Competent Communicator Certificate, as well as achieved first place in the Inspirational Speech Area Level Contest and second place in the Table Topics Division Level Contest.
Now living in the Swiss Romandy, I have become quadrilingual in Spanish, English, German, and French. Lastly, when I am not spending time with family or friends, I am reading or listening to audiobooks, or playing soccer, running, doing yoga, salsa dancing or cooking.
