I also worked as a Visual M. Coordinator for different brands such as: Tommy Hilfiger LATAM for the Caribbean and Bath and Body Works Latin America.
I've showcased my artwork in different international exhibitions such as: Fashion Week Panama, Sin Fronteras (Bogotá, Colombia), IKAS Art (Madrid, Spain), Les Petites Riens for Tom Van der Borght (Brussels, Belgium), and others.
Regarding teaching, I have been an educator in the Art & Design field at Universities, such as Italiana de Diseño Mexico, LaSalle College International, and other institutions.
Besides textile design, I co-founded: ergomod.co, adaptive wear for people with disabilities.
I currently teach Visual Arts at an IB School and continue to design my own prints.
