I'm a software engineering manager currently based in Miami. I use this site as a way to share what I'm learning out in the open and write about my own experiences as honestly as I can.
In college, I studied Cognitive Science with a specialization in Human-Computer Interaction at UC San Diego. During my final year, I started programming and co-founded the non-profit Learning Equality, which provides open-source educational software to students without Internet access.
After a couple of years, I moved with my girlfriend (now wife 💓) to Houston, where I serendipitously met the co-founders of Liongard and joined the team as their second employee. I grew with the company from no funding through Series B, from two employees to well over 100, and scaled the product from zero to thousands of customers.
In early 2022, I joined Amazon as a Software Development Manager.
