I have a B.A. in Anthropology and for the past 25 years I have conducted ethnographic studies, ethnohistorical research and fieldwork in Mexico and Puerto Rico, specifically among First Nations ceramic producers,Catalan and Corsican immigrants and their descendants, ritual specialists and fishing villages studying their mode of production.

I also served as Assistant Professor in 5 Field Archeology courses for University College London-Institute of Archelogy and University of Puerto Rico.

And I have participated in 49 Phase I, II, III archaeological projects for public/ state / federal and private agencies in Puerto Rico(AFI, USACE, SHPO) and Mexico (Hidalgo, Veracruz, State of Mexico, Mexico City and Yucatan) in collaboration with the Institute of Anthropological Research (UNAM), the National School of Anthropology and History (ENAH), Underwater Archaeology Branch (INAH), the University College London (Institute of Archeology), the Universidad Veracruzana, the Center for Advanced Studies of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, the Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña and Discovery Channel Latin America.

I also have archives research experience in primary documents at Archivo General de Puerto Rico (XIX-XX cent.), Archivo General de la Nación, México City (XVI-XX cent.) and Santa Clara University Jesuit Mission Archives (1794-1846). I have storytelling experience, as I have worked with 11-27 years old co-educational groups. And I have Paleographic skills (XVI-XIX cent.), military studies, numismatics and documentary resources seminars for archaeologists.
