Mauricio Issa​​​​​​​
Enthusiastic about motorcycles and bicycles, I hold degrees in Industrial Design and Engineering from Icesi University in Cali, Colombia. Currently based in New York City, I am both a dreamer and an avid reader of business-related literature and entrepreneurial ventures. My journey includes honing my craft in Italy, where I spent two months perfecting the art of pizza eating and participating in a Product Design Summer course at Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan. As a Co-Founder of the travel goods startup Arlo Skye, I am privileged to contribute to its growth, product design and strategy. Additionally, I've collaborated with talented individuals on projects for companies such as Colgate-Palmolive, All Clad, Made by Gather, Perkin Elmer, Javar, and John Deere. My passion lies in creating meaningful and impactful designs that resonate with people and organizations alike.
