I am working as a Learning & Design Strategy Consultant for the Culture and Capability Team of ASB in Auckland, New Zealand.
I am a Designer with a focus in Education. Be it a social media campaign, a website, a training program or a simple presentation, I bring my design insight.
Today I relocated to New Zealand with a new Permanent Residence.
I am in a project with ARIA in collaboration with Reallocate to build an ope source Unmanned Aerial System (UAS).
I have been invited to attend the Schmiede12 Festival Of Ideas in Hallein, Austria in early September 2012 to share my work on Ocean University and ARIA.
With ARIA, Arturo sets his sights even higher this year, working towards the development of a new roadless transport system, which will be a revolution in logistics and will provide a more democratic way to gain equal access to isolated regions all around the world.
The BBC recently interviewed me about our plans for building the internet of atoms. Matternet will make our vision of a roadless world a reality.
I participated in the Falling Walls Lab 2011 and presented MATTERNET as part of the 2011 Falling Walls Conference in Berlin, Germany.
Think of it as the Jetsons meets Mother Theresa: "We want to shift the paradigm and say, do you really need roads?" explains Matternet team member Arturo Pelayo
I participated in Autodesk's IDEAS, an exclusive gathering of thought leaders for the purpose of exploring design—as a systematic approach to problem-solving and innovation, encompassing form, function, and performance—and its impact on corporate and societal success.
I am Co-Founder of Matternet, a Singularity University company that will alleviate poverty and accelerate economic growth for the rising billion through a roadless transportation network.
I have applied for the TED Fellows 2012 Program. It is my goal to take Ocean (www.OceanUniversity.org) closer to reality.
