A LITTLE ABOUT ME
For as long as I can remember Ive always been a designer. As a kid in Bogota, Colombia I would sit for hours drawing. At the time, I didnt even know what a designer was, but really thats where I was headed. At the age of ten I moved to the U.S. Eventually I exchanged my pencils, sketch books, and line drawings for a computer, and HTML5. I still get that same thrill of creation when I work on a design that I know people are going to see and use. These days I get as much pleasure (and often more) from working with a team completing projects and building great products.
I have a degree in graphic design from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and a Masters in Management (an MBA equivalent) from Lesley University. Learning the latest stuff is a never ending process for me. Thats why I recently entered Startup Institute Bostona highly selective training program that prepares early and mid-career folks for high-impact jobs in Bostons startup technology sector. My specialty at Startup Institute was product development and design, and included a mobile development project for Constant Contact.
OTHER STUFF YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW
When Im not playing with pixels, youll often find me as a semiprofessional photographer taking photos of my travels, architecture, food, and people, enjoying an eclectic taste in music and movies, spending quality time with family and friends, contributing content in social media circles, and putting new applications through their paces (yes Ive a beta tester on a few). I also cook traditional Colombian and personal style experimental dishes (I cook it, you eat it, and you let me know how it tastes). I also make and take pride in baking the best sweet potato pie north of the MasonDixon line!
