MFA ’24

Why did you choose to enroll in DMI?

I chose to attend DMI for three main reasons: firstly, I am and have always been an avid reader, cinephile, art admirer, and maker; second because I found myself constantly examining technological developments and their history and potential future. Finally, I joined DMI because have a background in Linguistics (Anthropology, communication) and wanted to become an Industrial Designer - a design program seemed like the correct next step in that direction.

I am a Mexican-Argentine-American Renaissance polyglot that is interested in all things human and how we fit into our physical and sociological world; as a result, my interests and hobbies span the depth and breadth of the human existence. Within the context of design, I would like to explore and codify the language/ concept of truly sustainable product design and development that is in harmony with continued technological evolution.
