I’m a content producer and training specialist based in NYC.
I help companies scale their training operations by designing and delivering instructional content, implementing best practices in learning and development, and leveraging data to make awesome human-centered training programs.
On my free time:
+ I write a blog in Spanish called Perspectivas.co about the books I read and the places I’ve been.
+ I read pretty much everything that falls into my hands; with a strong preference for anthropology, sociology, history, science, and innovation books, as well as Latin American literature, and the ever-indispensable National Geographic magazine
+ I photograph. Most good stuff in my blog or here.
+ I discover New York on bike, usually next to my dog Pancho, and my husband, and talented Peruvian graphic designer, Giancarlo Castiglioni.

“Humanity’s most valuable assets have been the non-conformists. Were it not for the non-conformists, he who refuses to be satisfied to go along with the continuance of things as they are, and insists upon attempting to find new ways of bettering things, the world would have known little progress, indeed.”
Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the ‘normal people’ as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like ‘Have a nice day’ and ‘Weather’s awful today, eh?’, you yearn inside to say forbidden things like ‘Tell me something that makes you cry’ or ‘What do you think deja vu is for?’. Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others.
“So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.
