I have 20+ years of experience working with technology companies, from startups to major brands like Sony. I've shipped over 60 products, from enterprise software to consumer targeted iOS/Android apps. My product work has ranged from classic product management and product marketing, to scoping, user stories and mapping out user experiences (although I'm not a UI/UX designer by any means). Much of my career has been spent in strategic marketing and business development. I've created partnerships, corporate and product brochures, websites, press releases, grant proposals, pitch decks, investor decks, promotional videos and many other types of content. I've been a mentor to 30+ startups, raised seed funding, secured Federal grant funding and pitched many VCs and Angel investors. I've also provided Innovation Coaching to large corporations. I have a strong technical background and am used to being a value-add jack-of-all trades. I believe in finding the right solution to a problem, not just the easiest answer. If your project needs professional work, attention to detail and a quality end result, please contact me. I'll be happy to help.

As a senior investment banking executive in the Asian region's financial capital, principal mandate focused on the development of Corporate & Project Finance capabilities for fairly greenfield institutions established to serve as an M&A vehicle, on behalf of primarily ASEAN-based, family-owned & controlled conglomerates, for the acquisition of companies in the more developed economies of the Asia-Pacific region & the Western Hemisphere. This start-up environment enabled a comprehensive & proactive involvement in all nuances of the cross-border M&A process, including deal origination, negotiation, due diligence, pro-forma & sovereign risk analyses, legal documentation, regulatory compliance, preparation of Offering/Information Memoranda, Underwriting Agreements, & investor relations. As a principal provider of financial products & services to emerging enterprises seeking inroads into non-traditional sources of capital, as an alternative to the more conventional intermediate & long-term bank loans, specific operating responsibilities called for the development & implementation of a revenue structure to augment net interest margins with fee-based income from advisory, sub-/underwriting, & syndication transactions, as well as capital gains from carried-interest positions. Subsequent to Asian-based investment banking engagements, spanning a period of almost 25 years, applied Corporate & Project Finance skills & experience to emerging opportunities in the US markets, specifically in the then-nascent industries of Information Technology (IT), Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), & Telecommunications. Consultancy engagements in these industries led to initiatives as founder/co-founder of firms that would exploit the confluence of these previously divergent technologies, to respond to the global imperatives of such combinations, envisioned to eventually warrant cross-border strategic alliances to enable major players to enhance their domestic operations with a global footprint.

I am Mexican and I have 20 years’ experience of Mexican literature. I studied Latin American literature at the Universidad Iberoamericana. I then worked for four years as the editor of various Mexican magazines (for example, Parola Pasatiempos and Metroscubicos), prior to studying English in London and French in Belgium. My exposure to contemporary Mexican literature and culture increased after 2003 when I began working for the International Cervantino Arts Festival in Mexico, the most important international artistic and cultural event in Mexico and Latin America, and one of four major events of its type in the world.It is a member of the European Festivals Association and the Asian Association of Theater Festivals. During my 3 years’ work with the Festival I was required to manage projects and was responsible for budget management. Furthermore, I established contacts with writers, publishing houses, academics and literature organizations worldwide. My work Internationa Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) (an international agricultural research organization) as a Ediorial Director has involved the organization and management of projects and my dealing with multiple cultures. I have worked with several Mexican arts institutions, specially in The Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes (INBA). I was the literary advisor for the Mexican dance company Ensamble Rosas Govaerts. I then co-created in Morbid Anatomy, a play by Proyecto Lab. Since 2000 I have also worked as a books and cultural reviewer for Clara Magazine and Pasion Magazine in Mexico. This has allowed me to interview important Mexican and overseas writers as well to strengthen my relationship with the most important Publishing houses in México. I have outstanding leadership skills and I am fluent in Spanish, English and French. I also have more than six years’ experience working remotely, including managing projects
