I have been involved in teaching since 1970, dealing mainly with those questions related to the theory of Design. During this time I have attended seminars and courses imparted by relevant figures in this field such as Sven Hesselgren, Tomás Maldonado, Gui Bonsiepe and Claude Schnaidt. The introduction of new design techniques in Cuba, including Computer Aided Design, was the subject of papers delivered by me as soon as 1982 in events like the First National Conference on Building Science and Technology and the Second Congress of the Latin-American Industrial Design Association (ALADI). As a Professor I was a member of the Faculty of Architecture at the Instituto Superior Politécnico "José A. Echeverría" (ISPJAE) and one of the founders of the Instituto Superior de Diseño Industrial e Informacional (ISDI). My name was included in the first edition of the Catalogue of Latin-American Industrial Design Teachers and Researchers published by the Laboratorio Brasileiro de DESIGN Industrial.
I have read papers in the First Ibero-American Encounter on Cities (Lima, 1983), lectured on Cuban Architecture in Budapest (1979) and in the Universities of Algiers and Constantine (1981) as part of the cultural exchange activities within the International Architects Union (UIA). My practice as an architect has been mentioned in specialized publications such as professor Roberto Segre's books on recent Cuban Architecture. The "Máximo Gómez" Vocational School (1976) which I designed was included in the Cuban exhibit at the Second World Biennale of Architecture (Sofia, 1983).
I established my residence in Spain in 1992, working as a CAD and GIS consultant and teacher. Since 1995 I have been an Associate Professor and Researcher on Computer Aided Design in the University of Cantabria and CAD Instructor at the Instituto de Formación y Estudios Sociales (IFES). I have taken part as as an invited Professor in the Master's Degree Programs at the Universidad Mayor de San Andrés (La Paz) and the Universidad Autónoma Tomás Frías (Potosí), both in Bolivia (1996), and in the Universidad Nacional del Nordeste, Argentina (1999). I have been a member of the Autodesk Developers Network since the late ‘90s, having authored three books about Visual LISP programming (2003 and 2012).
