My name is Manuel.

I focus on human-centered ideas. You can check out some of my work below.

I have a Masters in Design Management from IED Barcelona, and a BA in International Relations and Philosophy from FIU.

This is a small site where I post current and past projects.

In my past life I was a journalist. You can read some of my published work here.
