I have a strong interest in all kind of technology related to digital fabrication and the conviction that this new way of manufacturing will bring important benefits that will contribute to rise to the current social innovation challenges. As an Industrial Designer and Master in Marketing Management I am interested in the development of sustainable projects that benefit the community, applying marketing and design tools for their evaluation and implementation.
