I was born in Bogotá, Colombia, but since I am ten years old I have lived in a small city called Manizales, located in the middle west of my Country, just in the center of a Region called the “Coffee Axis”, because it is the place where is produced the better Colombian soft coffee and then it is shared with the whole World!
I have Industrial Engineering for profession, I am a College Teacher for vocation, I have been an Entrepreneur since 1998 for passion, I have been dreaming about being a musician and a poet as a frustration, and I am a Family Guy for LOVE! Mariantonia my wife and I are the proud parents of two lovely girls called Ángela María and María José.
I work at the Manizales Catholic University as a teacher for the class of Entrepreneurial Thinking, and I am the director of the Entrepreneurship University Office, called EmprendeUCM. We give personal motivation and business advice to our Entrepreneurs in order to They achieve their entrepreneurial goals.
I am also running my own business, a company called VIVA! Creativa. We use our creativity to design and take to reality innovative cultural events that communicate commercial, political or social messages to a target audience.
I love music a lot!, I enjoy reading almost about everything, I am sort of a geek Web 2.0 applications fan, I believe in God, I want the World to be a better place, I know it is possible and that is why I am here to learn a lot, to meet people from different places, their experiences and points of view and to share mine too.
