On august 2010, I founded the Ecuadorian chapter of The Zeitgeist Movement, and I would like to use this as the milestone that defines what I do. At that time I was training myself to be a physician (2013 promotion, best graduate student). Both experiences forged my interest in science, social welfare, public health, technology and politics, as defined by Aristotle.
My faculty was the birthplace of the Ecuadorian Center for Evidence-Based Medicine, it gave me the opportunity to be part of research experiences (Hospital Pablo Arturo Suárez) and to visit a world-class hospital (UNM Hospital). At the same time it trained my English to translate small articles, videos, scientific articles (Grupo Farma) and even a book (Robots will steal your job, but that’s OK).
The Zeitgeist Movement, on the other hand allowed me to meet different people all over the world, learn about different cultures and political structures, I learned to make myself responsible for my words, to lead and to delegate. I’ve spoken, along with many other volunteers, in national TV (ECTV, Señal Cero Grados) and radio, in universities, cultural centers, even in our national assembly (Aug, 2013).
On September 2014, I joined the “Free/Libre Open Knowledge Society” project as general coordinator, a global participatory process sponsored by three government institutions to changing the productive matrix of Ecuador towards an open commons of knowledge economy.
Currently I work at SENESCYT (National Secretariat for Higher Education, Science, Technology and Innovation) in the new Organic Code for the Social Knowledge and Innovation Economy of Ecuador.
