As an automation engineer, coding and programming are inherent in my life. In fact, I take advantage of technological development to improve systems along with empathic and friendly designs.


I consider myself a responsible and loyal person committed to common goals and responsibility within the place where I have worked, so I had the opportunity to support projects for my company and its stakeholders, achieving personal and group challenges in my academic and work-life which are depicted in the following facts.

Happy Clients


Hours Of Support



My skills are divided into two fields such as designer and developer and industrial / maintenance engineer.

Lean design for manufacturing 90%
Global Manufacturing system 80%
Total Productive Maintenance & Reliability Centered Maintenance 100%
Process engineering 75%
AR Foundation ARCore - Unity - C# 80%
Natural Language Processing BERT -Python 60%
3D Modeling: Blender, Sketchup 75%
Data Analysis - Power BI 100%


I had the opportunity to learn and improve my knowledge since I started working as a maintenance specialist engineer (2012) to an industrial engineering analyst (2020). General Motors was the place where I developed my career as an engineer in the manufacturing environment. There I was able to complement my technical knowledge with managerial, soft, and self-taught skills. Furthermore, this cocktail allowed me to lead many projects such as manufacturing systems implementations and innovative projects also supporting projects in other GM plants.
