So she has plenty of useful, insightful, and interesting information and experiences to share with you! Join us on Wednesday, January 27th at 11 AM EST🗽time on our IGTV Live.

From Madrid to London to New York City and back to Madrid, Pati has never been someone to turn down a new challenge, and she has focused her career towards helping Young Architects and Designers from around the world to find their career and their passions just as she did.

Pablo will go over some other topics such as:

✅ Turning down an offer to study at prestigious American universities (Columbia, Berkley, IIT, UCLA, Pratt, …) to instead work at HOK in New York City

✅ Getting a job at one of the top 3 studios in the world during the financial crisis of 2010, and what her secret tricks and techniques are

Getting an O1 Artist Visa when the HOK lawyer told Pati she only had a 10% chance of getting it approved!! 

✅ At only 25 years old, Pati was already Studio Manager at Sir Peter Cook’s Crab Studio in London 

✅ Founding a company from scratch, without business training, and have it prosper on her own, while surviving the first 3 years in which 95% of startups normally fail

Her mindset rule of thumb: self-knowledge, determination, and perseverance, which have always led her to achieve everything that she has set out to do, including running the NYC Marathon. In the same way you reach a wall you must climb in a marathon, you must do the same in your career.
