​Economics graduate, General Manager of the Central Reserve Bank and professor at Universidad del Pacífico.

"I feel I earn a lot teaching as it makes me do and explain things very clearly, even more clearly than it is generally thought they are. That helps me organize myself as well. The University students are very inquisitive, not passive at all. They will never believe what the professor says unless they get good arguments".​
