About

I started coding at 12 while attending middle school, at 18 founded my own software consulting firm and with it advised several domestic and international customers on for their IT needs. In college I studied Computer Science.

I became interested in Java and founded JUGsv, El Salvador’s first Java User Group, then in Google technologies and co-founded El Salvador’s first Google Technologies User Group (formerly known as GTUGs, now GDGs) where served as Speaker/Blogger, co-founded Mentoring for El Salvador, an award winning Mentoring Program for low income high-school kids in El Salvador developing a Web based platform that allows mentors to communicate with students.

I’ve designed and developed software for prestigious companies and organizations such as DataSoft, Avianca/TACA Airlines, EQUIFAX, ACF Technologies, the Inter-American Development Bank, co-founded and led mobile development at Geopon, a mobile commerce/advertising startup, later I had the opportunity to work at Genome, an award-winning experiential digital agency and startup accelerator where I created iOS and Android MVPs for incubating startups and also created websites and Android apps for United Airlines, EXXON & Mobile and Verizon.

Currently, I am Senior Android Engineer at BeenVerified.com, where my mission is to improve and maintain the company’s new Android apps I developed from scratch.

As you can see I love to code, I also love to attend hackathons, conferences and developer meetups to keep learning and share the little I know with everyone.

I enjoy reading, exploring the outdoors, taking long walks with my awesome dog Duke, to live a healthy lifestyle, cook new dishes every week, travel whenever I can.
