MexiBrit -You’ve been in London for quite a few years now (how many?) Does it feel like home these days? Does it keep surprising you? and in what way.

I have now been here for over twelve years, it is home. 
It always surprises you, that’s the beauty of the city, so much to learn and discover on a daily basis. The conversations you can have with some amazing people is always a highlight of my life here. 


MexiBrit – What has turned into a challenge for your job/projects with the current situation? Have you taken a turn to work in other fields? 

We are a multidisciplinary studio, which means we are working on various fronts at any given time. Like everyone else, we had a lot of work cancelled or postponed, but we have been keeping busy with a lot of the r&d that we had already in the horizon. So we are hoping for things to pick up soon, but in the meantime we are cleaning workflows and pipelines. 

MexiBrit – This week we celebrate Mexican Independence Day, what does it mean to you to be Mexican in 2020?

I am proud of my heritage, I am an indigenous man, my dad is Hiuichol. So I am very proud of being Mexican, I think that there is a toughness and a creativity that is ours, that no-one else in the world has, our tenacity is amazing. 

MexiBrit – What makes you homesick the most?
