About Me

Full stack web developer and entrepreneur with 15+ years of professional experience and a passion for open source software, web technologies, usability and accessibility.

I’ve worked as a contractor, as an independent and also as a software development company owner.

I'm currently working at the technology vertical for the largest advertising agency in the world, Publicis Groupe. I enjoy developing projects with big social impacts like the Open Library for Colombia’s Peace Process ( and the 45 Salón Nacional de Artistas. (

I am a highly motivated, self-taught professional who thrives on problem-solving and continually seeks to expand my knowledge of cutting-edge technologies in the FOSS ecosystem.
