More about me
Currently, i am a designer-researcher with Mutual Design (a social impact studio and strategy consultancy), and a PhD student. i write, i create, i (co-)teach, and sometimes i give talks and conferences. i study cities and people.
i am Mexican-Canadian, i use they/them and he/him pronouns.
My expertise on participatory co-design methods comes from a decade of involvement with urban planning projects, social sciences research, social-environmental initiatives, community-building advocacy, and experiential learning methods and spaces.
i like challenges that create the conditions for understanding complex systems, identifying potentials for change and impact, and building/catalyzing collaborative processes among people—while keeping sustainability and justice in mind.
