Sergio Correa de J. Medina
I am passionate about:
Design Thinking and working with people. Having been an educator for my entire professional career has given me the joy of intellectual exchange and the privilege of being an instrument of personal growth. Design is a stimulating and rich, discipline
A little known fact about me is:
I am Brazilian, educated in the United States, and also a Spanish citizen. I am profoundly interested in facts and evidence-based research. My own design process is a reflection of that.

One reaches a certain point in one's career where there is an urge, a sense of mission of leaving something meaningful and valuable for others. From food waste, to energy, from plastic's impact in the environment to designing better, more socially inclusive cities, my canvas is as diverse as it is exciting and motivating. Design, as never before, has been demonstrating how integrative a discipline it is. Coupled with team work, bringing experts from the most diverse fields, design is now one of the most powerful change agents; a true catalyst for better natural, built and human environments.
