Executive Leadership Program - Amsterdam Class 12
I have always had a passion for starting new projects, solving problems, and creating products or services. I love innovating and combining insights from different fields to build new ideas and implement solutions. As a serial entrepreneur, I am the Founder and CEO of Fotolife, a souvenir photography, and technology company. My academic background includes a major in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Tec de Monterrey in Mexico and an MBA from MIT Sloan in 2012.
I started Fotolife when I was only 20-years-old, but only recently focused on it full time. Today we are a team of 120+ people that serve more than 5 million tourists per year. We have successfully developed technology ranging from hardware to software and a cloud platform. One of my favorite characteristics of the company is how we combine technology, creativity, and tourism in our everyday activities.
I am also a shareholder and Director at the Board of Alltournative and Rio Secreto. These two amazing eco-tourism companies share the purpose of creating life-changing experiences while preserving the environment and creating tangible benefits for the surrounding communities. This vision has inspired me to get involved in Centinelas del Agua, a nonprofit that promotes conservation and clean water. More recently I became a partner at Innovation Workshop, an agency that develops software, digital marketing, and creative services; I am providing guidance to institutionalize and scale up the company.
