About

little story

From Lucena, a little town from Cordoba and based now in Malaga. I’m 25 years old. Everybody calls me Alvarin because I still conserve my child spirit.

I was very little when I started to use computers… I didn’t know how to write but in the Paint App of my father computer I saved files with my name! Then I started to destroy things… TV, family computers, PS1, Gameboy… and then I learned how to fix! 

Due to economical difficulties I started to earn some money fixing things in my circles.

I decided to study Product Design Engineering and Mechanical Engineering because was the most unknown fields for me with the idea of take a work in a big company. After two years I took the Erasmus and I change my mind & my mindset moved to a more collective, open & conscious way. After that I started to move my own project. In the path I had the luck of meet with amazing people, learn from different perspectives and even the opportunity of transmit my knowledge to friends, students and entrepreneurs.

Earth needs Design

Design is a powerful tool that shapes our world and we’re not using correctly. 

We’re here for one reason. Mines is to help Earth & Society to survive in someway or at least support those who do.

Creating and managing problems now a day needs to have a proper vision.
