CREATIVE DIRECTION & PRODUCTION

For the past decade Eileen has been working in the fields of Architecture, Art and Design where she has managed large and small scale multidisciplinary projects that bridge these fields with neuroscience, psychology, health and technology.

Eileen was born in Ecuador in 1986 and has been living in the UK for 22 years where she studied Architecture, Art & Design at Edinburgh University. Since 2007 she has also worked for a number of award winning practices on large and small scale architecture projects in both the private and public sectors.

DIRECTOR OF SPACES AT WAVEPATHS

Currently Eileen is working as Director of Spaces for Wavepaths - a team of scientists, technologists, designers, psychotherapists and artists on a mission to improve global wellbeing by making transformative experiences widely accessible. Led by design and rooted in science, Wavepaths develops ‘Experience as Medicine’, provided through a new category of mobile tools and urban spaces.

She co-designed and produced the first Wavepaths space in Brick Lane London, due to open April and May 2019 - a sanctuary of calm and a retreat from modern life’s demands with a supportive environment for deep introspection and emotional reconnection.
