About Me

I was a Management Information Systems tudent at ITAM and also an exchange student at UT Austin. My 2 biggest passions are books and communities. That is why I am building a startup called Beek, and I have been involved in many entrepreneurial events and activities. I am always looking for challenges that will improve my development in life because I believe that learning never ends. I love reading books and doing outdoor activites, specially water sports.

B.S. in Management Information Systems May 2016

As an MIS major at ITAM I have learned to apply my knowledge of Technology and Information Systems in order to create the best business strategies. I recognize the importance of a company's data as an asset, and I leverage my programming skills to base business decisions on that data. I have been awarded for my academic excellence every semester at ITAM, which is known for its exigency and difficulty, because I am very commited to my goal and I always work hard.

The University Of Texas at Austin

McCombs School of Business January 2015- May 2015

I went to UT Austin as an exchange student for a semester. That semester definitely changed my life. The McCombs School of Business is the 6th best school of business in the US. Being there I was able to take Finance, Marketing and Management Information Systems classes, and what I learned there in just a semester is incredible. Also, I was able to take entrepreneurship courses and get in the LongHorn Startup Lab with my own startup, where I had the opportunity to work with amazing instructors such as Bob Metcalfe (who invented Ethernet and WiFi), Ben Dyer (founder of PeachTree software) and Joshua Baer (Founder of Capital Factory).
