What makes you a Culturati?

At 4 years old, I was enrolled in a bilingual-bicultural immersion elementary school, learning both Spanish and English with peers who were crossing the border every day. Being surrounded by people who were seemingly different, and so similar, sparked a passion within me to celebrate the colorful traditions of the world.

How did you discover your Culturati nature?

While in elementary school, we routinely celebrated bi-cultural holidays, geographies, languages, cultures, and people. I embraced my multicultural upbringing, ultimately earning my bachelor’s degree in Spanish Language and studying abroad in Madrid, Spain. I have been Culturati for as long as I can remember. Being Culturati has allowed me to develop a greater sense of who I am as a person.

What type of Culturati are you?

I am an artistic Culturati; inspired by techniques, patterns, fabrics, foods, languages, dialects, and other expressions of beauty through culture. Seeing and experiencing multicultural art can transport and engulf me into the world and headspace of the artist. I am motivated and intrigued by the choices these individuals make, especially when using local materials in their work.

What makes you a good Culturati Project Manager?

My diverse professional path combines all my skills perfectly, making me a strong Culturati Project Manager. Most of my career has been working under executives in fast-paced, high-pressure environments. My upbringing in Hispanic education, along with my passion for detailed and organized execution are manifested and celebrated on the Culturati team. Applying my creativity to projects; both in strategizing analytical processes and in expressing myself artistically, encourages me to dive deep into my work strategies, ultimately providing high-quality customer experiences.
