During his academic career he won three first place prizes including the distinguished Portman Prize. He also holds a Bachelor of Environmental Design degree (with honors) from the University of Puerto Rico.

From 2015 until the start of 2022, Otero Fuentes worked at Front were he was involved as a facade system designer on a range of high profile projects including the Joslyn Art Museum Expansion (by Snohetta), the MIT Metropolitan Building renovation (by Diller Scofidio + Renfro), 262 Fifth Avenue (by Meganom) and Google Campus (by BIG + Heatherwick Studio) amongst many other projects.
