Personal Projects

Antigua Trading Co. 

In 2015, I worked with an American to developed a profitable weekend passion project.  We prototyped, designed, and brought to market a unique line of artisan leather products using traditional Guatemalan fabrics (We closed it down after both of us founders moved out of Guatemala – all of our products were sold).

Mosaics and Painting

I make mosaics from recycled tiles. I learned the technique by reading books. I've participated in an exposition and sold some of my work.


CISV and volunteer experiences 

I’ve been part of different projects like Friends Around the World, an exchange program for studying English abroad. I've also participated as a camp leader in CISV, a global, organization committed to working for a fairer and more peaceful world; and in TECHO, a nonprofit organization that volunteers to help communities by providing funding and construction of transitional homes in Latin America.
