About Me



I am currently living in New York and working on several deep learning academic projects while ending an MS program focused on machine learning.

Previously, I worked as a Software Engineer for about 3 years building customized web and mobile applications. My background includes working with consultancies, marketing organizations, and freelance projects.

I fluently speak English and Spanish.


I believe in any knowledge that comes from the scientific method, applying this principle to almost everything we do, we will not only evolve as species but our surroundings too.

That is why I make use of this method to build digital mediums that strive to enhance our bounds and develop our awareness and intelligence.


I believe worthy results are achieved within a multidisciplinary framework. That is why I have work experience on:


Machine Learning


Software and Frameworks


Linux, Scrum, GIT, WordPress, RESTful and SOAP Web Services, AJAX, jQuery, Bootstrap, Foundation, UI, UX, Photoshop, Illustrator, MVC, OAuth2.
