He is an industrial designer born in Argentina (Córdoba, 1988). I have graduated from the National University of Córdoba. I have founded and directed MÍNIMO ILUMINACIÓN where from the beginning I have bet on the competitive advantage in the design and the revaluation of the Argentine culture through it.

"I believe in creating value for society through organizations and developing a sustainable company over time, with a contribution to the objective culture of Latin America, which considers the care of resources and the development of a more equitable society."

While attending university, she participated in some international design competitions where he was a finalist in "SalaoDesign - Casa Brasil" 2009 edition and in "Talents Design II - sustainable design" 2011 edition organized by the Banco Santander Foundation of Spain.
