I am passionate about:
Knowledge and its applications to improve people's lives. As a scientist for years I work on projects that have a positive impact on agriculture and nutrition. I am also a photographer, chef and community leader. I write personal and family stories.
A little known fact about me is:
I'm honest and I have a deep social responsibility. As a leader I have developed several institutions that have served to change the lives of the people and the organizations where I have performed as a student and as a professional.

The first fact that I would like to highlight is my wide international experience, I have lived in Ecuador, Venezuela, Mexico, USA and France. I speak very good French, English and Spanish.
I directed biotechnology research groups, which has allowed me to develop the capacity to manage complex multidisciplinary work teams that included researchers from various countries in different disciplines, associate technicians, pre and graduate students, administrative staff; the drafting of projects and reports thereof, as well as the management skills to successfully complete most of my projects
Hi Yvonne. Thanks for your commentary. I got it. Yes, I am. Plant Biotechnologist and I have been working in the secundary metabolism of plants, specially cocoa. Cocoa is very good for health and certainly there is a marked for medicinal plants among the migrant community .
Hi Zulficar, I previously answered you inquire, but for an unknown reason didn't go thru. I saw your project, and we share some points. My question to you is. How do you avoid people lending money from your project and disappearing or buying drugs?
Hi Ashley, thanks for your comment and especially for your query. We have a big problem here with the Venezuelan immigrant community. This community includes professionals with a broad spectrum of knowledge. Our approach is to put everyone to work in their field, doctors who take care of people's health, lawyers who provide legal advice, dietitians who work with the malnourished, agronomists who produce food. We need infrastructure, a house, and we have the offer of a farm that we need to put into operation. Any suggestion?
