More about me

“Sustainability Transformation is not longer a hippie movement, it is a 13 trillion business opportunity according to the UN & Impact investors.”

For the last 15 years, I have been working with Leaders, Organisations & Businesses in the transition towards Sustainable Development. My expertise covers the following:

1. Strategy for Sustainability Businesses: Business Modelling, Branding, Communications & Global Partnerships.

2. Innovation Designer & Manager: Designing and Rethinking sustainability products & services.

3. Coaching & Education: Designing and providing education for a new generation of leaders in sustainability.


I have designed and organised more than 100 conferences, workshops, summits, & courses related to sustainability & social innovation.

I have consulted more than 500 businesses & leaders across 10 countries about sustainability opportunities and transformation.

I have been awarded and recognised by top companies and organisations such as The Regional Academy of the United Nations, 1MillionStartups & The Ministry of Economy of Austria, Oxford University, The Climate Reality Project, ClimateLaunchpad, PCTE Group of Institutes (Ranked in the top 10 business school of India)

Son of indigenous people, I was born in Mexico where I studied Law, Business and Economics; I consider myself a mix of constant creativity, brutal honesty, contagious passion, and results-driven person, a result of more than 15 years working around the world.

In 2010, while leading an activist movement for digital rights, I was forced to leave my country due to the Drugs Cartel War, this also allowed me to pursue my passion for understanding the world, and brought me to live and work in 13 countries across 4 continents: India, Vietnam, Thailand, Kenya, Rwanda, Morocco, Mexico, Czechia, Ukraine, Armenia, Spain, Germany, and Austria.
