Throughout his eight-year career, he has amassed substantial expertise in large-scale residential projects and various architectural typologies. His involvement in high-end interior design, urban planning, and preservation projects reflects his broad skill set and dedication to architecture. This passion first became evident when his undergraduate thesis project was constructed by the city, embodying local needs and visions for a pivotal public space.

After earning his Master's Degree in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University, where he studied under Steven Holl, he developed a unique architectural language inspired by music. This integration of art, light, and technology has not only fueled his creativity but also reinforced his dual career as a musician, allowing him to blend his two greatest passions.

Continuously seeking to advance his knowledge in architectural technologies, he participated in the Futurly Workshop led by Mariana Cabugueria from Zaha Hadid Architects. There, he honed skills in creating organic forms using Maya, ZBrush, Grasshopper, and Rhino. His project 'Akakor' was showcased at the Digital Futures Young Edition, where he was a featured speaker.

As a researcher at the Online Lab of Architecture, he explores innovative architectural technologies. His project 'Power of Data' processes social media data to enhance architectural practices and has been exhibited in Hong Kong, Paris, Madrid, and Lima.

In 2024, his efforts were recognized with the Fray Jose Maria Vargas Award for the “Mi Juventud” House in Cuenca, a UNESCO world heritage city. This project was praised for enriching urban life and preserving historical districts. Additionally, his “Rocas de Misicata” project won the Ornato Gil Ramirez Dávalos Award in 2019 for the best building in Cuenca, Ecuador, marking a significant milestone in his career.
