I spent most of my childhood in my hometown where I studied Communication Science in Valle de Mexico University, Business Administration in De Leon University and Tourism & Hospitality in San Miguel de Allende University.
I also lived in Vancouver, Canada for a total of eight years where I became an Audio Visual Engineer at Pacific Audio Visual Institute and worked in the industry for Rogers Arena, The Roxy and other venues.
