I was born in Bogotá, Colombia, but shortly after my birth my parents transfered to Ecuador and settled in the capital, Quito. In 2005 I travelled to Medellin, Colombia to pursue a five year fashion design program at the Colegiatura Colombiana. During my studies I participated in a one year exchange program with the NABA academy in Milan, Italy. I also worked for the Colombian designer Hernan Zajar and the Ecuadorian photography studio Knockout Studio.
After completing my BA I returned to Italy to complete a masters course at the Politecnico di Milano in trends, textiles and technology.

I currently live in Quito, Ecuador.
