About

I'm Software Engineer travelling around the world, 12 years ago I've wrote my first line of code in JavaScript, since then I've been involved in many software projects, each project more exciting and challenging than the other. On the road I've done many friends, I've learned many lessons and achieved many goals. Below some details of my career.

Experience

The Entrepreneurial Adventure
May 2019 - Present (San José, Costa Rica)
Entrepreneur & Product Manager
After all these years in the industry I've decided to take a sabbatical year to rest, learn, unlearn and work on personal ideas. At the beginning of this period I've created a health magazine called La Candidieta in order to help people in Latin America suffering from a complicated condition called candidiasis.
Furthermore I've created a company called Tripping Cats. We are currently developing a community management platform that promises a revolution in the way people interact in their neighborhoods. The first version of this software will be released on January 2020. The Team and I are excited about it.
