I believe character is rooted in DNA, so like my ancestors I have spent my life on the road, a nomad, adventurer and collector. I am also a designer. I began my training with studies in architecture and industrial design at the University of Miami, while still in high school. Architecture took me to Los Angeles and a degree in art history led me to Sevilla in southern Spain. I made it to NYC via FIT where my passion for fashion led to a masters from Polimoda in Florence.
A Central American upbringing immersed in in native materials and artisanal craft, nurtured a deep-rooted belief in innovation through tradition. This paired with my studies and a globetrotting wisdom, led me to create goods that marry function and attractive design. The Nomadic Collector was born to bring together this sense of purpose and nature into a sustainable travel and lifestyle luxury brand.
