I studied Electronics Engineering and have a master’s degree in Project Management (Major in Project Design) and a master’s degree in Management and Knowledge Technologies (UC3M). I also have a postgraduate degree in Higher Education.
I specialize in the design, architecture, and development of software and technology projects by implementing agile frameworks and a value-driven approach. I have learnt to mix the business and tech sides of a project by delivering high value even in the early stages of project development.
My experience is focused on Software Development and Engineering. I'm a web and mobile developer, but I feel more attracted to front-end development.
In 2008, I co-founded Pixmat, a software and technology development agency based in Panama and we have worked on several different projects. I lead the Tech and Software Development team until March, 2020.
From 2010-2014, I worked at Admios (Panama / San Francisco, California) as a Software Engineer. I had the opportunity to work on projects for companies such as American Express, Yodlee, RightScale and SET (by Conversant) Media.
From 2014-2019, I worked as the CIO for IFARHU, where we made several significant changes by incorporating new technologies into everyday (and bureaucratic) processes. We even won 2 awards at the National Innovation Awards on Governemt back in 2016, the first for IFARHU. Check what we did.
On August 2019, I joined ProductPlan (Santa Barbara, California) as a Software Engineer.
Interests / Manifesto
Software development and digital innovation are my top interests: I love the idea of creating complex systems based on new technologies to deliver results and streamline processes.
I am convinced that by implementing Agile and Lean mindset we can create user-centered products that maximize value.
I believe in Open Source and Free Software, so I impulse the use of these over proprietary software.
I maintain a faithful conviction that design, communication, and collaboration are essential for the effective development of tech projects and that bureaucratic processes and complex structures have to be avoided.
My other interests are e-Government (and almost anything related to government and technology), music, photography, personal finance, education, and coffee (like any other Panamanian).
