DeTao Masters Academy and work environment

In 2018 I took the opportunity of being a Designer and Design Lecturer at DeTao Masters Academy (Today sd - Siva DeTao School of Design) inside Dirk Wynants Design Studio. The experience is a dive into education design itself, with a deep commitment to the learning outcomes and physical outcomes. The most important career objective for me is working all over the world creating solutions for new designs, solving problems related to human factors and making all the companies that I work better to society. I'm a pro-active person, with a "Let's do it" behavior, always looking for self and company improvement. As a member of a team, I normally create projects by myself, trying to enhance productivity and learning for all inside the work environment.
