Born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, one of Latin America’s leading industrial and innovative cities, I am an enthusiastic entrepreneur currently in my second year of a Master of Science in Management, Technology, and Entrepreneurship (M.S. MTE) at École Polytechnic Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL); EPFL is home to one of Switzerland’s two world-renowned Federal Institutes of Technology.

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering and 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. In Los Angeles I 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 French-Switzerland, I am currently on track to 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.
