Previously I was director of a dance & fitness studio named Shanti Studio.
Although I graduated myself from Electronic Engineering (ITESM ’01), I have been a dance teacher since 1997, first in my homeplace Guadalajara México, but later in places such as Curitiba Brazil and Ahmedabad, India. I have started a masters in Management with Marketing but I didn’t finished it.
During my lifetime I have lived in Aguascalientes, México; in Evry, France; in Ahmedabad, India and in Curitiba, Brasil. I have been also a Karate & Kung Fu student, a volunteer for AIESEC, a webpage designer, a Smart-Homes designer, and a Kodak employee.
Besides Dance, I love traveling, social media, geek stuff like videogames and comics, environmental issues, chess, scooters, literature, drawing, graphics design and entrepreneurship. I hope you find something interesting here, and feel free to contact me.
