On a mission to simplify the complexity.
I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and have lived in Los Angeles, Medellín, and Rio de Janeiro. I have also traveled around S.E. Asia, S. Africa, and W. Europe.
My path into software development and technology started with art and politics.
Technology fascinates me from an art perspective because it allows us to combine different medias in new ways. I believe that in the information age, artists have a major role to play in shaping our understanding of vasts amount of information.
During my undergrad in Diplomacy and World Affairs at Occidental College, I studied the role technology can play in the formation of public policy and I realized that technology can be a very effective way of making a positive difference in the world.

My 7 year professional career has revolved around creating software. Along the way, I have had the privilege of building software with people in many capacities. I have had roles in software production including: Software Engineer, UX/UI Designer, Product Manager, Scrum Master, and DevOps. No matter what role I'm in, I try to stay true to the mentality of full-cycle software operations.
In my experience, I have also had the pleasure of working alongside an assortment of teams, on different products, using a variety of tools, within different industries. I have also contracted, worked full-time, and even co-founded a tech. company, we failed spectacularly, and the experience is still one of my biggest accomplishments.
Over the course of working on a range of projects, I began to specialize in frontend web development. I was most recently a UI Architect for a 9 billion dollar company called Atlas Corporation, where I was responsible for all things related to our frontend codebase: quality, performance, accessibility, design, security, and DevOps. I also built a microfrontend architecture for this company to extend the benefits of domain driven design and microservice architectures to the frontend.
