Hey there! I’ve been on quite the journey with over 20 years dedicated to Advanced Mobility. Originally from Spain, Audi AG and some scholarships helped me jump into the world of car design. My career led me to create concept vehicles for GM and Ford, ultimately heading Ford's advanced studio in London, focusing on innovative vehicles and business models.
A decade in California sparked my interest in entrepreneurship, leading me to start three mobility-related companies: zumocharge (EV-charging as a service), watt-r (low-cost infrastructure on wheels) & itMoves (EV carsharing). Along the way, I connected with the iPod team, which I joined as European Programme Director. I reconnected with them again last year at Streetscope, a traffic-safety SaaS company where I wear many hats as Head of Operations (except the Python-writing one).
I hold a BS in Transportation Design from ACCD (Pasadena, CA) and an MBA from Imperial College (London).
Outside of the (remote) office and family-time with wife and kids, you'll catch me buried in a good book, adding to my photo-of-the-day collection in London, picking up no-code skills, or gearing up for my second marathon.
B2C service to help current and future drivers charge their electric vehicles even if they don’t have access to a driveway. That’s up to 1.2 million cars in London alone. Charging at night means traffic is low and the grid is cleaner.
Infrastructure-in-a-box for the Bottom of the Pyramid. Flatpack solar powered $1,000 cart for water entrepreneurs in Sub-Saharan Africa. More than 600 million people (still) have no reliable access to clean drinking water.
Ultra efficient, safe, single-seat electric vehicle tailored to urban car-sharing operators, where low operational costs are key. Low-cost local manufacturing. Runner-up at the California Cleantech Open business competition (transport category). A bit ahead of its time?
Innovate UK supported program, partnering with GMD & Delta, rescued from the ashes of AV platform startup aiPod. AV-ready L7 EV platform for Mobility-as-a-Service providers. City-friendly, safe, ultra spacious single seat interior, ready for autonomy. World reveal at MOVE2020 London.
Before entrepreneurship and the need to change the world (ahh!) there was only car design, an obsession since childhood. Achieving my dream was not easy (we are talking mid 90s here) but some people and institutions believed in me, and gave me the opportunity.
Automated, personalised horoscope generator using ChatGTP along with several online automating tools. Fun to build back in 2022, less of a novelty today.
