I'm a 35 years old, Colombian entrepreneur, and from a young age, I harbored a dream of soaring through the skies as a pilot. This childhood fascination with aviation laid the groundwork for my lifelong love affair with travel and exploration. Whether it’s discovering new destinations, immersing myself in diverse cultures, or savoring exotic cuisines, I've always been drawn to the thrill of adventure that comes with exploring the world.

I’m graduated in Business Administration with specialty in Business Management, throughout my career, I've delved into various sectors such as energy and hospitality, gaining invaluable experience along the way. However, it wasn't until a year and a half that I found my true calling in the burgeoning field of drones. Recognizing the immense potential of it and seeing it as a profession of the future, I took the leap and founded Smart Aerial Solutions in 2023.

Since then, my passion for flight and exploration has seamlessly merged with my entrepreneurial spirit. I've dedicated myself to mastering the intricacies of drone technology, obtaining certifications in professional photography, photogrammetry, and aerial inspection. I am very eager to expand my knowledge and experience to provide solutions that remain at the forefront of innovation in the industry, ensuring that Smart Aerial Solutions is ahead of the market offering.

When I founded Smart Aerial Solutions, based in Miami, I invested my personal savings into the venture, purchasing two drones tailored for different applications. The first is the DJI Air 3, renowned for its prowess in aerial photography. The second is the Matrice M30T, hailed as the premier drone for aerial inspections and mapping, equipped with thermal cameras capable of detecting energy leaks, water seepage, and temperature differentials on surfaces. These capabilities empower us to provide clients with crucial insights for informed decision-making.

However, my ambitions extend beyond conventional applications. My goal is to impact the industry by introducing drone-powered services such as pressure washing, thermal verification, photogrammetry, among others. Currently, we are in the experimental phase with the Matrice 350 RTK, exploring its potential to carry out pressure efficiently and effectively washing tasks. This innovative approach not only streamlines operations but also reduces environmental impact, marking a significant step towards sustainable drone solutions.

With each new project, I'm fueled by a sense of excitement and curiosity, eager to push the boundaries of what's possible with drone technology. My goal is simple: to provide our clients with the highest level of service, leveraging the latest advancements in drones to deliver intelligent solutions tailored to their specific needs, which are renovated day to day.As I continue this journey, I'm grateful for the opportunity to combine my childhood dreams with my professional endeavors, shaping the future of aviation one flight at a time.
