β€œI was early taught to work as well as play. My life has been one long, happy holiday; Full of work and full of play-I dropped the worry on the way-And God was good to me every day.” - John D. Rockefeller

Who am I?

Born and raised in Cartagena Colombia. Half Mexican. Currently living in Miami but travelling with my wife every time we have a chance. When I am not in front of a computer you can find me kitesurfing or going to some ⛰️ (I like adventure on every area of my life). Follower of God. The following quote describes pretty well the way I think about life (yes I really like quotes):

β€œIt is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
- Theodore Roosevelt

What is currently on my mind?

I am passionate about blockchain and the impact that decentralization of different processes could have on our daily lives. Finance, law, supply chains, personal identity, medical records etc... Lately I have been more involved in the Cosmos community contributing to some open source modules with the objective of improving the cross chain communication of EVM compatible platforms as I see this as a major milestone for the wide blockchain adoption.

Have also been reading a lot lately about regenerative agriculture and tech advancements in this area.

Personal Projects

  • Currently under construction is my latest project Makeway - 🚧.
  • Co-founded Fonbnk. A platform that tokenizes Airtime Credit (mobile data) through a simple ERC20 token and provides the infrastructure to redeem those tokens. Focused (but not exclusived to) in the African market. It is currently on TechStars Wester Union Accelerator program πŸš€.

Tech Stack

  • Started this year focused on improving my skills in Golang and it has become my dominant language. (Really important if you are contributing to open source blockchain projects)
  • Have spent a good amount of time of my career working on Front-End so I have a good experience working profesionally with React, GraphQl, Typescript, TailwindCSS and lately with NextJS.
  • Have been exposed to both relational and non relational databases on a professional level but If I had to choose I would go with PostgreSQL most of the time.
  • Do not consider myself a DevOps Engineer (not even close), but I have now a pretty solid understanding of Kubernetes.
