Hi there, my name is Ale. I'm a Lead Industrial Designer at MAST, a Bay Area design consultancy with a strong focus on developing integrated experiences, blending the lines between digital and physical.

Prior to joining MAST I lead the design and development of medical facilities and high-tech devices for Forward, an innovative Healthcare startup. Before that I worked for several Fortune 500 companies and early-stage startups as a Senior Industrial Designer at frog design's San Francisco studio for 4 years.

Over the past decade I have designed a bit of everything from furniture and interior design to consumer electronics, packaging and experience design. I started my career designing high-end furniture and spaces for award winning Esrawe Studio in Mexico City, Mexico. My pursuit for a career in tech brought me to the Bay Area. 

I try to look at the design process as a whole. I believe that different design disciplines should no longer work in silos and that true innovation comes from the cross pollination of multidisciplinary teams, which is the type of environment I love collaborating in.

I love languages and am fluent in English and Spanish. While my French and Italian are a bit rusty I like practicing them whenever I get a chance. I hold a BA in Industrial Design and a Masters in Interdisciplinary Design from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI.

My work has been featured in Time Magazine, Forbes, Architectural Digest, the Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City, ZONA Maco and the High Museum in Atlanta as well as other digital and printed media.
