My journey has had multiple turns
I come from a humble home in Peru, where I was encouraged to pursue civil engineering, although I preferred architecture. I majored in engineering for three years, but then I felt compelled to follow my faith more closely in a Catholic seminary. I studied some theology, philosophy, and history—subjects that had always interested me. As my experience deepened, I discovered I was called to serve God in the secular life.
This was also my chance to finally pursue a carreer in design! So, I moved to Costa Rica to study advertising design, where I also worked as an anthropology college professor and a freelance brand designer for some years. My fascination for Silicon Valley then took me to the San Francisco Bay Area, where I completed my design degree at SJSU and worked in multiple teams at SAP as a product designer.
I’m currently based in downtown Chicago, where I work for DocuSign in the automation of agreement generation and negotiation, at the SMB and enterprise market levels.
