Learning another culture and diversifying my persona, thoughts, experiences and palate - this diverse thinking and experiences have a direct impact on how I approach solutions and look at problems
I enjoy food greatly, like someone once said - "You know what a foodie is? Now imagine a country full of them." That is Peru and its people. I am one of them. I'm a humble, charismatic, fervent, hard-worker individual who is always ready to enjoy life at any given moment with a passion for diversity. I also enjoy romantic comedies and action movies, latin and house music, dancing of any kind, blogging, and imbibing. I enjoy soccer, swimming, crossfit and volleyball.
Graduated from the University of South Florida with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering.
I work to live, I live to experience, I experience to grow.
I find that one of the greatest advantages one can have in the workplace and outside of work is Diversity of Thought.
"Create a culture that is open to new ideas, and start with yourself."
