Luis Zea was born and
raised in Guatemala City, Guatemala. Since a very young age, he demonstrated
great interest for science. This interest was boosted after reading some
of Jules Verne's masterpieces. The French author was one of the chisels
that shaped the way Luis dreamed.
Luis grew in a family
that encouraged education and ethics above most things. He studied Mechanical
Engineering in the Universidad del Valle de Guatemala and later a Masters
in Science in Aerospace Engineering in Florida. He also enjoys learning
languages, as he is fluent in German, Spanish, Portuguese, English and
knows basic French. He is a zealous supporter of space and undersea exploration
and currently conducts scientific research at Cape Canaveral.
Luis has recently completed
his Master of Engineering degree and is looking forward to continuning
his studies as a Doctoral student in engineering.
